This course is designed for those wishing to learn the basics of Judaism, including those interested in conversion. The 13-week course will be led by all members of the clergy and educational team and features a variety of presentations, discussions and holiday celebrations. We meet weekly at the Temple on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. The registration fee for the class is $54.00, payable to Congregation Beth Israel. Payment is due before the first class and only receipt of the fee guarantees a seat in this popular class. Check the calendar for course schedules.

The Hurricane Harvey Flood Fund

Hurricane Harvey left Houston and surrounding areas in a shambles, but the great people of Houston are banding together to help and heal. Your help is welcome and needed. You may send Gift Cards (Kroger, Target, HEB, Lowe’s, or Visa/Mastercard, etc.) to Congregation Beth Israel. They will be immediately distributed to area neighbors to assist in replacing essential items and children’s school supplies.

You may also Donate directly to Congregation Beth Israel by clicking here. All funds will go directly to aid those who need immediate help. These funds will NOT be held to be allocated later. On behalf of our clergy (Rabbi David Lyon, Rabbi Adrienne Scott, Rabbi Joshua Herman, Rabbi Chase Foster, and Cantor Trompeter), David Scott, Executive Director, and Bruce Levy, Temple President, we are very grateful for your kindness, generosity, and help.

Hurt has no shame and no label; we just need to heal one another.

Rabbi David Lyon
