No matter where you come from or what you seek, there is something for you at Wise Temple. People enter Jewish life through different doors and with different needs. We offer many ways to enrich your Jewish life and connect you spirituality, educationally, and socially.  

Explore Wise Temple. We think you’ll like what you find:

A Vibrant Community

A Variety of Unique Worship Experiences

A Focus on Lifelong Learning

A Commitment to Social Justice

Beautiful Facilities: One Congregation, Two Locations; History of Plum Street Temple


Perhaps it’s the rich tradition, the beautiful facilities, or the educational excellence. Perhaps it is the spiritual leadership, the commitment to social action, or youth and family engagement. Everyone has different reasons, but arrives at the same conclusion: "I feel welcome at Wise."
