About

Rabbi David Lazar Soo Borson, MD, President Mission Statement: Temple Isaiah and Jewish Community Center of Palm Springs serves Coachella Valley communities through active engagement. Our core values are to better our world, sustain spiritual vitality, and promote intellectual growth. About: An inclusive, non-denominational synagogue embedded in a community center, we welcome Jews and non-Jews of all beliefs to share in our traditions at weekly and holiday services, in a rich variety of education classes, and at social gatherings and cultural events. Temple Isaiah and Jewish Community Center has played major cultural and social roles in the Coachella Valley since its founding in Palm Springs in the 1940s. Over time, our focus has evolved in response to changing local culture and demographics. The 21st century has brought us fresh opportunities to serve new populations as a cultural hub of the Coachella Valley, not just for Jews but for all Valley residents and visitors.
