Welcome to Temple Beth El

B’ruchim HaBayim ~ Welcome!
Temple Beth El has served the Jewish community of Humboldt County and provided a Jewish perspective in interfaith endeavors for over sixty years. Our members reflect the diversity of Humboldt County, coming from all walks of life and many different religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We welcome Jewish and interfaith families and individuals, including those who are new to Jewish study and practice. We are a Welcoming Synagogue, dedicated to inclusion of LGBTQ individuals, people with disabilities and people of color. Our programs are designed to meet the diverse spiritual, intellectual, and social needs of our members.  We gather to celebrate holidays, learn about our heritage, and support one another in times of joy and sorrow. We work together on social and environmental justice causes locally, statewide, nationally, and internationally. We both honor traditions and embrace innovation.

We warmly welcome visitors to our events and our website!

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!

From  Rabbi Naomi
Zoom, zoom, zoom!  What a holiday season it is! I was deeply touched that so many TBE members are setting aside the time to sit in front of computer screens to celebrate the ancient holidays with 21st century technology! Wonder of wonders! It was heartwarming to see your faces, hear your voices and learn from your insights.
