Each year a committee works in conjunction with the Adult Education Committee to present the Lyon Cohen Symposium, which features a multi-guest panel who discusses modern issues and their ethical implications. Previous events included business ethics, sports ethics, and ethical issues surrounding mental health.

[Flier for 4th Annual Event]

To register for our upcoming symposium, please visit the Membership Portal. Any questions, please contact Gabby Burgard at gburgard@beth-israel.org.

The Lyon Cohen Symposium is underwritten and made possible by a generous grant from THE LYON COHEN FUND FOR JEWISH BUSINESS ETHICS, which was established in loving memory of Lyon Cohen by the family of Marcie and Bob Zlotnik.

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
