Congregation Beth Israel’s mission is to be a welcoming and inclusive center for Jewish life in the Monterey Peninsula area.

As a center for Jewish life in our area, accessible to Jews of all backgrounds and their families, Congregation Beth Israel will serve as a house of prayer, a house of study, and a house of community, consistent with Jewish values and ethics.

Congregation Beth Israel is the dynamic, vibrant center for Jewish life in the Monterey Peninsula area.  Our members celebrate and nurture relationships with God and with each other while respecting and wrestling with our Jewish tradition. 
Our doors are open to all who seek the guidance of our Jewish faith. We strive to make a positive impact on our community and on the human condition through Tikkun Olam. 

CBI is a proud American synagogue that loves and supports the Jewish homeland in Israel.  We endeavor to instill pride in our identity, recognizing those who came before us while we build a strong Jewish foundation for future generations.  Members and guests are all accepted and respected equally; they will be encouraged to participate through community study, worship, and celebration.  We derive programming and administrative strength from our affiliation with the Union of Reform Judaism.
