Welcome to Congregation Beth Israel

Beneath our dome is a spiritual home, a place of community and friendship, a place to be inspired through prayer, a place for lifelong learning, and a place where every person makes a difference.

From preschoolers building community with a program that goes way beyond the Alef-Bet with art, music, and dance, to middle schoolers preparing for their B’nei Mitzvah, to madrichim honing their leadership skills and building work experience, to musicians rehearsing and performing on our Oneg! Choir and Oneg! Band, to high schoolers broadening their horizons and having a blast on social justice trips, our program has something for all students to look forward to!
