Pathways to Connection and Meaning
Temple Solel is a spiritual collaborative. We, all of us together, are in relationship to create a mindfully spiritual, adventurously educational, joyous and profound Jewish community. We are excited by exploring Judaism, making deep and sincere connections, and supporting one another in every interesting chapter of our lives.
If you seek relationships...
Temple Solel is a place for people of all connections to Judaism, ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, life experiences, sexual orientations, and gender identities to meet on sacred ground with shared aspirations. Our community is made whole by the variations of those who are part of our shared Jewish journey.
Temple Solel members are lifelong North County San Diego locals, folks new to the area, Jews-by-choice, Jews of Color, LGBTQ+ family, Sephardic, Mizrahi, and Ashkenazi Jews, Russian speaking Jews, Israeli Jews, non-Jews, Jew-curious, Jewish adjacent, Jewish supportive, and Jewish allies. We are single people, young families, wise elders, multi-generations, professionals, volunteers, activists, students, parents, friendly dogs, and, most importantly, really nice people.
