Important Parking Information
We encourage everyone to car pool
as downtown parking is always limited.

The lower Wilkes University parking lot down the street from Temple Israel (the old Corcoran Printing lot) is available to us for all High Holiday services.

Wilkes University is requiring that Parking passes be displayed in order to avoid ticketing. We can email you a parking pass that you can print yourself by emailing your request to info@templewb.org. Or you can pick up a pass at the office or at the front desk of the Friedman JCC anytime starting from Wednesday 9/21/22

Street parking along S. River & W. River Street on our block is available without having to pay meter fees.

We are hoping to secure additional convenient parking solutions, so please keep an eye out for updates.

Services will be held
in the sanctuary and streamed live online

You may enter through the rear ramp entrance and front side entrance on left.
Armed security will be posted at entrances and in various other locations.

Temple Israel Health & Safety Protocols:
In an effort to keep our Temple community healthy,
below are our current guidelines:

  • Masks are strongly encouraged, but are optional for fully vaccinated individuals while at Temple Israel.
  • People who are not feeling well, have Covid symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with Covid-19 should stay home and participate virtually.
  • In the spirit of Tzorchei Tzibbur, "caring for the needs of the community", individuals who are not vaccinated are required to wear masks while attending worship services or Temple programs.
  • We appreciate that there are members of our community who are immunocompromised or, for other reasons, still feel more comfortable wearing a mask when attending in-person events regardless of vaccination status, and we fully honor personal preferences.
