"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. 

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. 

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.  If you have questions about the school or are interested in joining and enrolling your children in our school, you may write our school director at

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.
