TIYP – Temple Isaiah Young Professionals

TIYP – Temple Isaiah Young Professionals – is a social, spiritual & educational initiative designed for folks in their 20s & 30s to connect with one another, with Temple Isaiah and with congregants of all ages. Temple Isaiah is proud to be a multigenerational synagogue; congregants represent just about every age & life stage imaginable. TIYP celebrates those connections: throughout the year we’ll host events specifically for folks in their 20s & 30s AND we’ll highlight broader multi-age Temple Isaiah events we believe are of interest to this age demographic. All event information will be shared here on this page, so check back often for the most up-to-date details.

Not yet a member of Temple Isaiah, or want to get more involved in TIYP? We look forward to meeting and discussing together what belonging to Temple Isaiah can look like for you. Reach out to Rabbi Jaclyn Cohen or Membership Manager, David Sabel to learn more.

Hanukkah Hot Ones | December 14 at 7:00pm
Join TIYP for the hottest Hanukkah event of the year - literally. Spice enthusiast Cantor Randall Schloss will be your host for Temple Isaiah's multigenerational Hanukkah Hot Ones, a game-show-inspired Hanukkah event where you’ll taste hot sauces from the popular YouTube series Hot Ones and answer questions together with your friends. In the spirit of Hanukkah, we will skip the chicken wings and instead use latkes as our SDU - spice delivery vehicle. Note: if you do not want to participate in consuming the hot sauces but want to come to the event to provide moral support, that’s cool! We’ll have a "spectator section” for you to enjoy. Cost: $18 for participants, $10 for spectators
