- Founded in 1944, Temple Israel of Natick is a vibrant, inclusive, egalitarian Conservative synagogue, serving communities in the MetroWest and Greater Boston areas. We have approximately 500 member families, and we welcome interfaith families, Jews by choice, and those of any age, sexual orientation, or family structure. Our mission embodies three traditional roles of a synagogue: a place of worship and celebration; a house of study, encouraging and supporting life-long Jewish learning; and a community center, fostering caring and a sense of belonging. We have a vibrant nursery school, religious school, USY chapter, Sisterhood, and Men's Club. We hope you will join us for study, social events, prayer, social action, and more!
