Welcome to Beth Israel 

A member of the OU - the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations - Beth Israel strives to perpetuate the legacy of Torah Judaism in the modern world and provide a home for those who wish to learn about and observe halacha, Jewish law. Beth Israel Synagogue welcomes all persons of the Jewish faith to join, and accepts the diversity of practice and thought among its members.

It's a Lag Ba'Omer Celebration!

It will be an epic celebration of Lag Ba'Omer! Enjoy a barbecue dinner with hot dogs, burgers, sides, desserts, and beverages plus archery, frisbee, soccer and Hasidic tales.  Bring your guitar and be a part of the music, as well. 

Many thanks to Maneva and Harold Edelman for sponsoring the event in memory of Maneva's brother, Gene Ruppe.  The cost is just $5 per person.
