Temple Israel in Athol is an open, trans-denominational, egalitarian congregation.  We welcome Jews from all backgrounds and experiences, interfaith and extended families, visitors, and anyone who is considering the Jewish community as a spiritual home. 

We strive to provide vibrant worship experiences, rooted in traditional practice, but honoring and including the diversity of Jewish experience, observance and backgrounds.  We encourage participation in all areas of synagogue life and consider Jewish education to be a life-long pursuit. 

As a congregation we are dedicated to tikkun olam, the repairing of our world, participating in the wider Jewish and interfaith communities to meet our sacred responsibilities to each other, our nation, and our world.
