Be Part of Our Community

Beth Israel welcomes people of all backgrounds who are part of Jewish families to find a home in our congregation. We are committed to maintaining the rich traditions and lessons of our Jewish heritage. We warmly welcome couples and families of interfaith and invite and encourage participation by all family members and spouses in our congregational life. We believe the spiritual interests of both our congregation and those of our interfaith couples and families are better served by inclusion within the nurturing community of Beth Israel.
