Membership & Community

In every life there are challenges and obstacles. In every life there is a desire for greater comfort and peace. At Beth Israel, your personal happiness is our endeavor, too. Worship, study and participation are just the beginning of steps we can take together towards meaning in all the times of your life. When you require more, then it’s time to reach out and ask for time to visit privately and confidentially with your rabbis or cantor.

Each member of our clergy team cares deeply about your emotional and spiritual well-being. It often begins with honest conversation and ends with a renewed sense of personal strength and dignity. Today, there are many resources available to help you including therapists qualified in many disciplines. Please remember that your rabbis and cantor are qualified to take each concern and offer guidance from sound principles in Torah, the source of our enduring values.

When you’re ready to call, we’re ready to listen.

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
