Welcome to Temple Aliyah

  • Welcome

    Temple Aliyah is a dynamic and egalitarian congregation with a warm and inviting atmosphere.   We are a dynamic and diverse community that embraces people of all ages, backgrounds and lifestyles.  We encourage our members to enrich their Jewish lives, to enhance their Jewish identifies, and to engage in lifelong learning.

  • Gan Aliyah Preschool

    IMAGINE your child….feeling right at home, surrounded by caring educators and a supportive staff.  Exploring and growing in an environment  infused with Jewish values. 

    Where each teacher knows that your child is a unique individual developing, at his or her own pace, a positive sense of self and others, and learning how to negotiate the world around them.


  • Community

    It's our Jubilee Year! Fifty years of creating Jewish community and celbrating Jewish tradition.  We have a wonderful schedule of holiday gatherings, a congregational trip to Israel in February, a special Shabbaton weekend, a Gala Purim Ball, social action projects, concerts for kids, and much, much more.  Click here to learn more.

  • Music

    Music is a very important part of community life at Temple Aliyah.  Supported by Cantor Bogomolni, our building is often filled with spiritual and joyful singing and chanting -  by our children in our new Gan Aliyah Preschool and in our Mercaz Aliyah religious education program; by adults in Nashir, our adult chorus, and by everyone at holidays and during all of our services.

  • Worship

    "Becoming closer to Torah inspires us to connect with our tradition, Judaism, God, and one another in ways that are illuminated by the light of Torah." - Rabbi Carl Perkins

    Join us for Shabbat services or for minyan Sunday morning, Monday morning and Monday through Thursday evenings.

  • Learning

    Through our toddler and preschool programs, our innovative Mercaz Aliyah religious education program that makes the synagogue the center of their Jewish lives and learning, and our adult education programs, we encourage our members to enrich their Jewish lives through lifelong learning.

  • Social Action

    We encourage members of the synagogue to participate in a variety of opportunities to learn about, and inspire action, in response to Jewish issues of social justice that occur on local, national and international levels.  This past year, our annual Mitzvah Day focused on issues relating to homelessness.
