Learn more about Temple Micah.


Our Micah

As a spirited congregation, we strive to create a Judaism infused with meaning and relevance. Together, we attempt to answer the question of what it means to live a fully American and a fully Jewish life. Temple Micah is a welcoming Jewish home where you can bring your whole self and be your best self. We approach our Judaism with a lightness of heart and a sense of humor. In everything we do, we challenge ourselves to do better. To us, Reform is a verb.

Happening at Micah:


5777 Underwear Drive

Please join Machon Micah's 6th graders this High Holiday season for one of Temple Micah's most important mitzvah projects: providing dignity to the area's homeless by donating NEW underwear items to Friendship Place, a local community-based organization that works with the District's homeless. Pick up a flyer in the lobby with the list of underwear that are needed and drop them off at Micah through the end of October. For a detailed list of items need, please click here. Items can also be purchased from the Amazon wishlist and shipped directly to Temple Micah.
