Welcome to Temple Isaiah Palm Springs

Temple Isaiah & Jewish Community Center Palm Springs is a non-denominational Jewish spiritual community in which we constantly endeavor to keep ourselves attuned to the three pillars of Jewish Life: Torah (intellectual growth), Avodah (spiritual practice), and Gemilut Hasadim (fixing the world).

We aim to empower our members, and those who come through our doors, to create for themselves intellectual growth when it comes to Jewish heritage, practice, and theology.

We encourage all who come through our doors to take a creative approach to spiritual practice; whether that means traditional prayer and meditation, yoga, art, and/or spending time in nature.

We urge everyone connected with our community to develop an ongoing culture around caring about other.

Founded in 1940’s, located in the heart of the city, Temple Isaiah and Jewish Community Center has always played a major role in the cultural and social aspects of Palm Springs. Whether it’s civic needs, social needs, or cultural needs, we aim to be a center from which positive communal energy flows.

We invite Jews and non-Jews of across the spectrum to engage with our tradition by offering weekly services, educational classes, and social gatherings.


Introducing a new prayer book for Shabbat at Temple Isaiah 





Intellectual growth - Temple Isaiah
focuses not only traditional areas of
Jewish study but any kind of educational development which enriches both
the intellect and the human spirit.



Spiritual practice - while usually
understood as prayer, we include
other types of spiritual practice over
Shabbat and Holidays, everyday,
and in times of joy and sadness.


Gemilut Hasadim

Fixing the world -  loving-kindness, including social justice, environmental protection, and all forms of  global improvement.
