Congregation Tikkun v’Or (Ithaca Reform Temple) is a vibrant congregation that strives for a warm personal bond among its members, quality education for the children, and a dynamic program for adults. We welcome those from diverse backgrounds, interfaith families, LGBTQ families, people who are newly discovering Jewish connections, as well as those with a wide range of Jewish experiences.

Our core values are best expressed by three words:

Spirit / Community / Justice
