HISTORY & TOUR

History of our Temple

Temple Judea was founded in the spring of 1981 by Rabbi Joel Levine and a group of 12 dedicated families. For the first six years, our home was St. Catherine’s Greek Orthodox Church. In 1987, we built a permanent home on Chillingworth Drive in West Palm Beach, Florida. 

As Palm Beach County experienced growth and change, so did we. In 2003, we moved north to our new home at the Hoffinger Campus on Hood Road, in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. In keeping with the dynamic energy of Reform Judaism, we began a new journey and a new chapter in our history.

In 2007, we expanded our campus with the addition of a classroom building, the Hoffinger Community Learning Center.

Rabbi Yaron Kapitulnik joined our growing temple family in 2010.

In the summer of 2013 Cantor Alicia Stillman became our first full time Cantor.

After 34 years, Rabbi Levine retired, becoming Rabbi Emeritus.  He and his wife Susan reside in Los Angeles to be close to their daughter, Rachel.

Together, we look forward to continuing the exciting blend of tradition and modernity that is part of the uniqueness of Temple Judea.
