- Learn and Engage
- Who We Are
We connect deeply with Jewish tradition by engaging in worship, celebrating holidays and lifecycle events, pursuing education at all stages of life, and building a holy, caring community. Our Jewish values inform how we live outside the walls of our congregation: we are committed to making the world a more just place (tikkun olam), fostering connections to the state of Israel and Jewish summer camp, and more. We work together to form lasting relationships. We look to our sacred texts for wisdom and guidance to remind us who we are and who we aspire to be.
Congregation Beth Israel welcomes individuals from diverse backgrounds. Our congregation includes children, parents, grandparents, and friends – families who have been here more than seven generations and recent college graduates. We embrace interfaith families, Jews by choice, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals. We provide a home for teens, empty-nesters, and seniors: a sanctuary for individuals struggling economically, physically, emotionally, and spirituality.
