Temple Israel is Ottawa’s Reform congregation where Jewish Life Happens — committing ourselves to Kehilah K’lal Yisrael, and Tikun Olam.
We are a dynamic and welcoming congregation (Kehilah) where varied Jewish experiences offer pathways to learn and to experience God for all, respecting tradition and creating new celebrations.
We appreciate at Temple Israel that there are so many ways to partake in Jewish life. Some of us like to sing and pray, some of us like to engage in traditional texts, and of course some of us live to schmooze and nosh. Temple Israel can be your spiritual hub to gather as one.

Door to the Future Campaign
Temple Israel’s building has served us well for 47 years, but it’s time for a refresh.
Updates to improve accessibility, security, safety and aesthetics will ensure that our building can best serve the needs of our current membership and next generations.
