Welcome  

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.
