We pray for speedy recovery ‘re’fua she’lma’ to all who require healing in our community. If you wish that a name of a sick person(s) mentioned at services, please send the names to the rabbi. Speedy recovery to all

We would like to encourage every Jewish person in our area to join us as member and join our Temple Israel family in building a Jewish life here in Valdosta.
