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.

Hello Senior Youth Group, my name is Randi Lieberman and I am so glad to be joining Temple Beth David this year. In addition to working with the Senior Youth Group I will be teaching at our Community Hebrew High School. I’ve got so many great things planned for this year. The seniors had our first event on September 23rd where we ate pizza in the Sukkah and then for dessert we made edible Sukkot. It was so nice meeting those who came and participated. I’ve been making phone calls and have had some great conversations about what we should be doing this year in youth group. Everyone’s suggestions are great and will be planned. If you have any question please do not hesitate to contact me at

OSRUI's Father and; Son Kallah provided Neil Rigler the chance to focus exclusively on his boys for the weekend in a dynamic Jewish context. He was also able to connect with other dads and talk about the challenges of being a father in today's world, and what the Jewish component of that can and should be.
By Cantor Hayley Kobilinsky The Eileh Ezkerah with which most Reform Jews are currently familiar does not bring to mind familiar melodies. While thematically, Eileh Ezkerah fits well with Yom Kippur, it does not hark to the sounds of the High Holy Day melodies we typically quote. What, then, is to be done with its […]
The way we look at early childhood engagement is rapidly changing. In a recent JTA article titled, “Free tuition? Jewish preschool leaders say money’s not the problem,” URJ Faculty Member Cathy Rolland discusses the Reform Movement’s role in the evolving realm of early childhood education and the importance of building a collective voice in the […]
