Growing Tree of Life
You are invited to participate in the rededication of our
Temple Beth David is built upon three cornerstones:
We are a sacred community
בְּצֶלֶם אֱלהִים בָּרָה אתוֹ
B’Tzelem Elohim bara oto.
God created human beings in the Divine image. (Genesis 1:27)
Temple Beth David is a sacred Jewish community of members and families. We are committed to welcoming and respecting everyone who wishes to join us in our liberal and warm congregation. We are dedicated to to the task of "Tikkun Olam," "Repairing the World," and reaching out to all those in need.
Temple Beth David is our Spiritual Home
וְעָשׂוּ לִי מִקְדָּשׁ, וְשָׁכַנְתִּי בְּתוֹכָם
V’asu lee mikdash, v’shachantee b’tocham.
And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.(Exodus 25:8)
We gather in our Sanctuary for worship on Jewish holidays & Shabbat. We celebrate life’s joyous moments and life’s most challenging days together as we strive to open our hearts to the Divine in us and the Divine in our world.
We are a Place of Learning
וְתַלְמוּד תּוֹרָה כְּנֶגֱד כֻּלָּם
Talmud Torah K’neged Kulam.
And the study of Torah is equal to them all.(Talmud)
At Temple Beth David, we value learning at every level. From the youngest children in our Early Childhood Learning Center, to the students in our Religious School, to adults and families, we offer classes, programs and activities throughout the year.
Our Jewish heritage links us to the people Israel, that great nation born out of the covenants between God and Abraham, at Sinai and descending from the House of David.It is through the bonds of religious affiliation that we are able to keep the covenant alive.Established in 1961, Temple Beth David, a Reform Congregation, was born out of the dreams, desires and determination of a small group of Jewish families. The families organized and word spread.
From our earliest days to the present, we have grown from a small fledgling temple to a thriving congregation.As a Jewish family community we strive to develop and refine programs that meet your needs, while offering you various opportunities to grow with us and share in our tradition.We treasure the spirit of closeness, warmth and haimishness– that feeling of family – on which Temple Beth David was founded and our congregation thrives.

By Sophie Foxman The concept of tikkun olam (repairing the world) was introduced into Judaism in the early rabbinic period. It was introduced to me — and has shaped my life in astonishing ways since then — when I entered NFTY. Growing up, I idealistically believed I could do anything and help everyone, a concept […]
Tonight at our Seder tables teeming with life, we pause with heavy hearts as we grieve with the families of those killed yesterday in the shootings that took place in a Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish senior living community in Overland Park, Kansas. The shooter, a former Ku Klux Klan leader filled with […]
by Rabbi Danny Burkeman Pesach is coming, and at s’darim across the Jewish community we will once again label four children as wise, wicked, simple, and the one who does not know how to ask. I have always struggled with this part of the seder for two reasons. All of my work with young people […]
