Shalom and welcome to Temple Beth Israel! We are a warm and diverse Reform community, and we look forward to meeting you at a Shabbat or one of our many social or educational events. TBI is the heart of Jewish life in the Central Valley. It’s a place to learn, pray, grow, and make face-to-face human contact.
Come meet our compassionate and dedicated leader, Rabbi Rick Winer, who inspires us to work together, to heal our city and world as part of our religious practice of tikkun olam, repairing the world. We have lifelong learning for everyone from our youngest children who attend K’tanim, to our Religious School, and B’nai Mitzvah program. Adult education offerings include regular Scholars in Residence, Shabbat morning Torah classes, Women’s Torah Study Group, and regular Shabbatons for the whole family.
Participate in Shabbat dinners, Break Yom Kippur Fast with 100+ of your closest friends, party in a Sukkah while the band rocks out, and celebrate Purim the way you’re commanded to – at TBI come make memories. Connect your children to new friends through our education programs or youth groups. Engage your teens in leadership and community service with our youth groups “Jew”niors, and FYGBI. Engage yourselves in our active caring committee or our Tikkun Olam programs.
We look forward to receiving your membership application and helping you join our congregation.
