Our Israel Advocacy Committee actively engages on current events and issues that impact Israel and Israel education. From speakers on Israeli topics, film nights, and an active delegation that attends the annual AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, DC, there are many ways to learn about Israel and have your voice heard.

To register for the next AIPAC Policy Conference and join our delegation, please visit www.aipac.org.

Additionally, every other year Rabbi Lyon and members of the clergy team lead an impressive and robust ten (10) days-in-Israel experience in the early summer months. It is a highlight event, and for many participants, one of the most impactful Jewish experiences of their lives. Other trips the congregation has taken in the past included a recent visit to Cuba. In the years when we don’t have our biennial trip to Israel, we are always exploring other Jewish communities around the world to engage!

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
