Mahzorim/Humashim Bookplates


This year, Temple Israel will offer two different opportunities to honor your loved one(s) with the contribution of a prayer book or service accompaniment. Mahzor Lev Shalem is used each High Holiday season and includes resources and commentary to deepen our community’s shared worship experiences.

The Etz Hayim Humash includes the Hebrew text and English translation of each Torah and Haftorah portion, providing a way to follow along during Shabbat, weekday, and festival services, in addition to multiple commentaries and essays.

To honor your loved one(s) with a Mahzor or Humash, please click here.


The Illustrated Torah


The Illustrated Torah, created with the gifted hand of Israeli artist Michal Meron, is a beautiful, hand-painted scroll that represents the stories within the 54 weekly parshot of our traditional Torah through highlighted texts and vibrant images. You can feel it, interact with it, experience it and learn from it.

Reserve your place in Temple Israel’s history. Purchase a pasuk (verse), aliyah or parsha corresponding to a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, anniversary, birthday or any other simcha. Or purchase an entire book. For more information, please click here.
