Temple Beth Israel is a Reform Jewish congregation where members may freely explore and express their Judaism in an atmosphere of openness and tolerance. Our friendly, diverse and multi-generational community is:

Bet Midrash (A Community of Study) - Education is at the center of our congregational life, offering vibrant and thought provoking Jewish learning for adults, children and families.

Bet T'fillah (A House of Prayer) - Weekday, Shabbat and Holy Day services engage our members of all ages and provide worship experiences to meet the diverse needs of our community.

Bet K'nesset (A Place of Gathering) - We are a community of friends, coming together to celebrate life's joys, cope with life's challenges and work to improve the world.

At Temple Beth Israel the vitality of our present and the promise of our future grow from the roots of our history and tradition. We believe that Jewish life finds its best expression when lived within a community, and so we support each other and strive to create personal connections within our membership, with Israel and with the greater household of the Jewish people.


Invite friends, family and neighbors, including prospective members, for Shabbat at the Park Friday, August 26, 2016.  Bring a Shabbat Dinner for your family and a dessert to share at Lovelace Park in Evanston at 6:30PM at Gross Point Rd. and Isabella.  The shelter will keep us dry if the weather is not perfect.  There will not be a service at TBI on that Friday night.  Don't miss this unique worship and Shabbat dinner experience.  This very special Shabbat at the Park will feature an OSRUI reunion for campers and staff who were at OSRUI this summer, activities for kids run by our youth group and an ice cream truck for cold treats!  And please remember that this is a perfect way to introduce prospective members to the TBI community.  Bring along a friend or neighbor, they will thank you for it as the sun sets at the park!
