ABOUT Temple Israel

We are so happy you could join us. Temple Israel is, and has been for 100 years, the place in Tulsa where Reform Jews can gather to explore and enrich our Jewish identity. Temple Israel is affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism. We are a diverse and inclusive community.

We are a congregation of 375 families and are active participants in Jewish traditions and innovations. We value and embrace: dynamic programming, prayer and spirituality, life-long learning and study, meaningful life-cycle occasions, community connections across the generations, social justice and civic responsibility.
