"My House Shall Be Called a House of Prayer for all People"
Temple Beth Israel is a warm and vibrant congregation devoted to Jewish learning, worship and acts of loving-kindness. We are a liberal congregation guided by a reverence for tradition.
Temple Beth Israel welcomes individuals and families of all backgrounds who seek to explore the Jewish way of life, spiritual growth and learning.
Below are a few of the services Temple Beth Israel offers the Great Lakes/Bay Area' Jewish community:
Shabbat Services - Join us on Friday Nights and Saturday mornings for an informal and "heimish" service, with lots of singing and open discussion. With advanced notice, childcare may provided. A Kiddush brunch follows services with bagels and warm conversation. Please contact the office for service dates. Due to COVID-19, services may be provided virtually, or hybrid in-seat/virtual until further notice.
High Holy Days -- Temple Beth Israel offers both adult and children's services. Membership includes High Holy Day seating. Baby-sitting is available during the services. Due to COVID-19, High Holy Day services may be celebrated virtually.
Religious and Hebrew Education Programs - Temple Beth Israel's kindergarten through post-B'nai Mitzvah program emphasizes Jewish learning in a fun and stimulating educational environment.
Dedicated members volunteer year after year to teach our youth on Sundays and in our mid-week Hebrew program. Midweek Hebrew can be offered both at Temple Beth Israel or virtually to accommodate Saginaw, Bay City and Midland members as needed.
Life Cycle Events - We will assist members with all life cycle events, such as baby namings, bar/bat mitzvah, weddings, funerals, and unveilings. Each event is personalized to meet the needs of each family. Temple facilities are also available for use during these important events.
