Welcome to Temple Beth David

Put more feeling in your Jewishness. Temple Beth David offers a break from the busy secular world. It restores us. It provides perspective on what is really important in our lives. Come weekly and find out why services make a difference in our congregants’ lives. Temple Beth David is an oasis for Jewish learning, prayer, sharing, and celebrating with family and friends. We pay attention to the spiritual side of ourselves–a sort of rehab for the soul. Temple Beth David is an intimate smaller shul where one person can make a big difference.

We have an active lay congregation. You will want to join us in the passion we bring to prayer. Whether you are an interfaith or Jewish couple, single, married, gay or straight or some other category that has been left out, you won’t feel left out at Temple Beth David.

We care for each other, care for our wider community and care about what happens in the world. Rabbi Smookler often wrestles in her sermons with what is happening and how our teachings help us to deal with it, a subject which comes up over and over at the Torah study table as well.

Meaningful Worship. If you believe that prayer is the song of the heart–join us. We help to transcend the emotional, language and cultural barriers that can distance us from our liturgical legacy.

Engaged Learning. Both children and adults learn, so that we all become literate, knowledgeable and compassionate Jews who grow to love Judaism and living a Jewish life.

Sharing with Others In the Community. We care about Jews everywhere–our community, Israel and the wider world. Come and be part of social activism.
