At Temple Beth Israel, we draw on our proud history to fashion rituals that are authentic, progressive, meaningful and provocative. We welcome everyone. You need not be Jewish or read Hebrew. Just bring an open heart.
We create a safe and supportive environment in which to contemplate our place in the universe and consider whether we are living up to our expectations and values. We do this with a unique blend of traditional prayers, contemporary poetry, old and new songs, lessons and ideas. And this year, on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, we warmly welcome the Reverend Jonathan Chapman, pastor at the Westfield Congregational Church as our guest speaker.
