Our mission is to serve the lifelong spiritual and educational needs of our congregants, within a welcoming and caring contemporary Reform Jewish community.
Our Reform community has come a long way since 1843, when like-minded German Jews officially founded our congregation. Now the only thing that is similar about us is our commitment to the exploration and celebration of Judaism.
We come from all walks of life, with different cultural and religious heritages. Beth Israel is a family-friendly congregation and a spiritual home for many interfaith couples, single adults, and the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community.
We are a home for people of all ages, for personal exploration, spiritual life, and engagement in the world. We give our children a true gift—for together, as a community, we teach them values and ethics that will guide them their entire lives. We believe everyone has something to offer and that there is a place for each of us. We are a place where angels thrive.
We provide the sacred space and you provide your Jewish self!
