Welcome! Temple House of Israel is a Reform Jewish congregation in Staunton Virginia with members from Staunton and surrounding towns and counties. We also welcome students from the several college campuses in our area.
Learn about us, read about our history and what’s new in our bulletin, see our calendar, meet Rabbi Joe Blair, find interesting links, get directions, or learn how to contact us. You can click here to view some of Rabbi Joe’s responses to issues of Jewish values, ethics, morals, and derekh eretz (proper behavior/Jewish etiquette).
For information on the timing of High Holiday services, please visit the calendar.
Tickets for High Holiday services have been sent to members. Anyone else wishing a ticket should contact the President, Rosalie Waterman at Secretary@THOI.ORG.
There is no fixed price, but those attending High Holiday services who are not members of the Congregation are urged to make a generous donation to help support us and defray the expenses of providing these services (and many others throughout the year); the suggested minimum is $100 per person – though THOI will not turn anyone away for lack of funds.
Young adults, Students, and BirthrightTaglit alumni are specifically welcomed, and should identify themselves as such – there is a specific membership category for those who fall into these groups.
