Welcome to Temple 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:

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.
