Facilities

Temple Israel’s campus is a beautiful blend of form and function.  Please note that the entire campus, both in the buildings and outside areas, is a smoke-free environment. Email Director of Facilities, Scott Giles or call (901) 937-2797 regarding Temple facilities.

Adult Lounge 

This well-appointed and private setting is located near the Danziger Chapel and is a comfortable place to relax or meet.


Atrium 

This entrance for Shabbat services and major events is complemented with a fountain, all “under the glass”. 


Atrium Lobby

Once you enter through the atrium’s doors, you’re in the atrium lobby, only feet from the sanctuary, Danziger Chapel, and Ettelson-Wax Hall. The atrium lobby is a nice setting for receptions or Oneg Shabbats.


Beit Midrash

This comfortable oasis is a fantastic space for learning, gathering, and connecting.


Courtyard

Home to Temple’s Sukkah, the courtyard is a beautiful and enclosed outdoor setting used for wedding receptions or various special events.


Courtyard Gallery 

Between the courtyard and Ettelson-Wax Hall, this area connecting the Scheidt Family Center and the atrium lobby is perfect for Shabbat dinners or for special events.


Danziger Chapel

With seating for over 300, this gorgeous chapel is named for long-time Temple Israel Rabbi Harry K. Danziger and his wife, Jeanne.


East Hall 

This gathering area outside the Scheidt Family Center is used for small receptions and dinners.


Ettelson-Wax Hall

Named for Rabbi Harry W. Ettelson and Rabbi James A. Wax, both of blessed memory, this beautiful, multi-use social hall is used for bar and bat mitzvah luncheons, meetings, wedding receptions, speaking engagements, parties, and more!


Hall of Presidents

The images of all who have served as president of Temple Israel are displayed here, as well as one of three pieces of artwork listing contributors to the A Gift for Generations campaign. The Hall of Presidents is in the area leading to the Scheidt Family Center.


Information and Welcome Center

The Information and Welcome Center is located in Temple’s main “everyday entrance”. Guests and members alike can stop by for assistance.


Playground

Located outside the Temple preschool, these fun and secure playgrounds are enjoyed by Temple’s preschoolers from the Barbara K. Lipman Early Learning Center.


Sanctuary

The semicircular design of the 1,500 seat sanctuary implies that there is another half beyond its confines: one half for the congregation within the sanctuary and the other half for the community at large.


Scheidt Family Center 

Another multi-use venue, the Scheidt Family Center hosts dinners, bar and bat mitzvah parties, MeFTY events, basketball games, religious school programs, and much more.
