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 High Holiday Services - it is too joyous an occasion to exclude anyone from participating in this important fellowship in our cozy Temple 'home'.
