Worship & Lifecycle

For many young people, the teen years are filled with a yearning for a spiritual identity all their own. At the end of tenth grade in Kehillah High, our 8 th -12 th grade community religious school program, students celebrate Confirmation, a reaffirmation of their commitment to live as Jews. A special ceremony is held at the end of the school year near Shavuot, the festival that marks the receiving of the Torah by Moses at Mount Sinai. This marks another major passage for students, many of whom choose to continue their Jewish education in Kehillah High through the 12th grade.

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
