Welcome to Temple Isaiah Palm Springs.
Temple Isaiah of Palm Springs is a welcoming and inclusive congregation embracing Judaism that is relevant for today while remaining committed to Jewish traditions, values, and ethics.
With the help of Frank Sinatra and other community leaders, Temple Isaiah and its Jewish Community Center, founded in the late 1940s, were expanded in the late 1980s to meet the need of the increasing Jewish population.
It continues today as a vibrant spiritual and cultural home for all Jews in the Palm Springs desert communities.
