Our Members Say

“TEMV is a warm, welcoming, caring, and inclusive community. It’s hard to decide the order of importance of all those and the only word I can think of that may contain all is ‘family.’” — Jim

“Our interfaith marriage made it tricky to find a place of worship that we were both comfortable with. TEMV’s welcoming and relaxing atmosphere has worked out well for our whole family.” — Jane

“TEMV has been a spiritual and communal home for our family for almost 25 years. We have celebrated joyous occasions such as Bar/Bat Mitzvahs of our children and Eshet Mitzvah for myself, a wedding for my daughter and son-in-law, and the birth of our grandchild. The community has also supported us during sad times as well. Just knowing that we are part of such an open, warm, and welcoming Jewish environment has made all the difference in our interfaith marriage and family life. Shabbat services are like a deep breath of fresh air.” — Carole

“TEMV is a place where people know who you are and reach out in times of need. This summer my husband had surgery around the time our third child was due. Many, many friends from Temple reached out to us, expressing their desire to help in any way possible. Our rabbi called to check in on us. What a great feeling to know that if we need help in any way, it is there for us.” — Sue

“I joined TEMV about 25 years ago so my children could get a Jewish education. I was from a ‘Southern Reform congregation and my parents were secular. I’m part of an interfaith family and my children are Hispanic. None of that made a difference at TEMV. TEMV has given me the opportunity to learn about my religion and encouraged me to be a leader. In the process, I’ve grown as a Jew and a person. I’ve met fabulous people and developed very close friendships.” — Linda
