Unlike most synagogues in South Florida, we have a long history. We were founded in 1922, and have been in the same location since 1928. In some respects, the history of Temple Israel is the history of Miami. For more than 90 years, Temple Israel has been a Jewish beacon in the central city of Miami. It has had a unique role in South Florida—maverick, intelligent, progressive.
Now in 2020, Temple Israel of Greater Miami is actively visioning and charting a course for growth as the downtown of Miami continues to go through its own redevelopment and renaissance. Our community has constantly been strengthened by moving forward while celebrating our past.
