Who We Are
We talk a lot about being a warm, intimate and contemporary synagogue; and truth be told, it is in our organizational DNA. In the mid 1950’s a small group of Jewish families from Congregation Emanuel sought something different from their synagogue experience. They yearned for a flexibility and creativity in the How’s and the Why’s of their educational and ritual program. So, these families began a religious school for their children that evolved into Temple Micah. Since this inception more than five decades ago, Micah has seen a myriad of progress and stumbling blocks that includes geographical moves, demographic changes and a bevy of talented and unique rabbis. At our foundation amidst the growth and change of these decades, this organizational DNA served and still serves as the foundational core to the way we face challenges, cultivate our successes and understand and celebrate Judaism.
Do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God. (Micah 6:8)
Together, we at Temple Micah are committed:
To learn and teach Torah and the traditions that bind the generations
To uphold the values of tolerance, respect, and compassion for all people
To practice tikkun olam, heal the ills and injustices of the world through tzedakah and acts of loving kindness
We are a welcoming community in which all may pursue a Jewish life journey.
