Baruch Ha-Ba! Welcome to Temple Solel.
Temple Solel, a proud member of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) is a Reform Jewish Congregation located in San Diego's North Coastal Community of Encinitas. It was founded in 1978. The synagogue now serves close to 750 families who live in a wide area throughout the county.
Regular Shabbat and Holiday services, a superb Early Childhood Center, Religious and Hebrew School, an exciting Adult Education, Sisterhood, Brotherhood, and five active Youth Groups are but a few of the programs and services offered by Temple Solel. Our staff and lay leaders are dedicated to providing Jewish religious, cultural and social activities through many and varied events which are enjoyed by our members and guests.
Our congregation generates an atmosphere of warmth, kindles the spark of Jewish awareness, and has established a strong Jewish home in the North Coastal Community. At Temple Solel, the teachings of Judaism are translated into positive, meaningful, creative life experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds. We pride ourselves on the quality of our interpersonal relationships; we truly reach out to each other in support and caring. As a Temple member, you also have the chance to make a difference, both within the congregation and community at large. Share your skills with others as a volunteer on one of our many committees and connect with the people who make Temple Solel the warm and caring place that it is. Temple membership offers you the opportunity to be part of a vibrant, committed community of Jews.
Deciding whether to join a synagogue, and which one, can be challenging. We hope the membership information will answer some of the questions you may have about Temple Solel. For additional information contact Barry Friedman, Executive Director 760.436.0654, ext 255. Hope to hear from you soon!
