Welcome to Temple Israel

Temple Israel is a Reform congregation in Omaha, Nebraska. We are a congregation of 642 families. We strive to bridge tradition and modernity so that worship links our precious history with fresh approaches to spirituality. 

May 26, 2021 COVID Update: By a miracle of science and in a triumph of humanity, the pandemic is receding and God is calling us back to our sacred temple to rejoice in God’s house of prayer. We are excited to announce that our Board of Trustees voted to re-open our temple building for in-person gathering. As we have done throughout the pandemic, we will proceed deliberately and in accordance with CDC and Douglas County Department of Health guidelines. Read the full announcement here.
