Welcome to Congregation Beth Israel

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

Congregation Beth Israel is the dynamic, vibrant center for Jewish life in the Monterey Peninsula and surrounding 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, the environment, and on the human condition through Tikkun Olam.

 

Some Outdoor Services Starting This Month

It is with much excitement that we look forward to praying together, in person, on Friday evenings, beginning June 4 at 6:00 PM. All Erev Shabbat services in June will be held at 6:00 PM behind the Synagogue. Please review the CBI protocols for in-person events here.

June is Membership Month

Our fiscal year begins on July 1, 2021. In the spirit of our pledge system, we ask each of you to give what you can, trusting that those with greater financial means will pledge more to offset the smaller pledges of those who cannot give as much. Please be on the lookout for your pledge letters or, new this year, pledge online.

Flame Rekindled

As we begin to reopen we look forward to pulling open a welcoming and refurbished set of doors. The main entrance to our synagogue, built in 1984, is a commissioned work of art titled “Seven Point Flame,” by the renowned Big Sur artist, Edmund Kara. For more information about this beautiful part of our synagogue please see the article in the May Shofar.
