We all need balance in life and there is no better way to get out of that routine of school and work than to participate in one of Beth Israel’s amazing variety of programs. The clergy, staff and many wonderful volunteers work hard to make sure that our programs reflect the needs and interests of our members. We are sure that you will find a program for you that will inspire, teach, enrich, or just provide some plain old socializing and fun. Young or active senior, and everything in-between, whatever your age or interests, we’ve got a great program that’s just waiting for you to try it out or to volunteer. Check them out now and get involved!

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
