The mission of Temple Israel of DeLand is
to provide a local Jewish House of Worship;
to perpetuate Jewish tradition through education,
social activities, and life cycle events;
and to develop and maintain a strong Jewish presence
in Greater West Volusia County.
Please invite friends and family to the Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret, and Simchat Torah - it is too joyous an occasion to exclude anyone from participating in this important fellowship in our cozy Temple 'home'.
2014 Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret, and Simchat Torah information may be found under 'SPECIAL EVENTS' page.
