Congregation Beth Israel is proud to be a part of the Portland community since our founding in 1858. We are affiliated with the Reform Movement through the Union for Reform Judaism. While our history provides us with a rich heritage, embracing new congregants ensures that we will be here to serve generations to come.
We are delighted that you are interested in becoming part of the Congregation Beth Israel family. Our members come from all walks of life. We welcome Jewish singles and single parents, Jewish students, non-Jewish spouses and partners, Jews of color, LGBTQ and Jewish families in all their diversity committed to having a Jewish home and to raising their children as Jews. Our programs are designed to meet the diverse spiritual, religious, educational, and social needs of our members.
Look around our website, come to Shabbat services, send us a message, or give us a call at 503-222-1069 to learn about Congregation Beth Israel. Our doors are always open to you! Our Executive Director, Josh Kashinsky, welcomes meetings to discuss becoming a member of our vibrant community!
