“Our experience with TSTI has been nothing less than exceptional.
We’ve seen tremendous growth in my daughters over the years, and we are so fortunate to witness how their minds have expanded in such an emotionally nurturing environment. We will always love TSTI!”
“I’ve always appreciated how open and inclusive TSTI is—but working on the temple’s Accessibility & Inclusion Task Force has shown me that it’s not just talk.
We are all completely committed to making sure TSTI is a place where everyone feels truly welcome.”
“Our older son’s Bar Mitzvah was an exceptional journey to help him gain confidence, understand Judaism, interpret the Torah, and teach him the importance of giving back to the community.
We are proud and very lucky to be a part of the TSTI community!”
“When we moved from New York City to Maplewood 20 years ago with a young toddler and newborn, TSTI preschool gave me and my family a sense of community.
It is wonderful that TSTI participates in two programs to help our food-insecure neighbors: TSTI Second Saturday Soup Kitchen and Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges. These programs have given me the opportunity to work side-by-side with other congregants to make a positive difference in our greater community.”
Led by our dynamic clergy — Rabbi Daniel Cohen, Rabbi Alexandra Klein, and Cantor Rebecca Moses — TSTI offers new families and existing members a vibrant congregation committed to the values and beliefs of Reform Judaism, including an historic and spiritual bond to the land of Israel and a democratic, just, and religiously pluralistic society in the State of Israel.
