Our longtime member, Dr. Ronald Avis has created the Dr. Ron Ronald Avis Foundation for Temple Israel to give young families with children an opportunity to be part of the great Temple Israel community at a very low cost.   In addition, to reduced dues, Dr. Avis is funding courses for children, adults and the entire family.   Rabbi Howald will be involved in teaching about Social Consciousness topics and will offer instruction in Jewish values and Festival Celebrations.  Temple Israel has also joined forces with PJ Library to offer an exciting story and craft class as well as an interactive music class.    There is so more to experience at Temple Israel!  We want to create a warm and inviting community and want YOU to be a part of this exciting adventure.
