About Us

tibuildingTemple Israel was officially founded by 13 families in 1940 to answer the needs and desires for Jewish worship, education, and life-cycle events. The Temple building was constructed in 1952, and we held our first Rosh Hashanah service in our Temple that year. A major addition was completed in 1972.

Today… Temple Israel serves our Jewish community through innovative worship, youth education, adult continuing education and cultural diversity. Temple Israel is inclusive of all people. Temple Israel Salisbury is also now part of InterfaithFamily.com…which offers web-based resources including more than 2000 articles written by, for and about interfaith families. They offer ways to build communities online and in person.
