We are lifelong Jewish learners. We learn in a variety of ways, and that’s why at Beth Israel, we offer a variety of experiences. However you like to learn, you’ll find programs that fit your interests and learning style. 


Founded in 1890, Beth Israel is a Reform congregation where generations of families have found a meaningful Jewish Experience.


“Tzedakah and acts of kindness are the equivalent of all the mitzvoth of the Torah.”
Your Generosity helps support Beth Israel. Your donation of any amount means so much.


Our sanctuary features the original stained glass windows designed in 1913 for our prior home in Atlantic City. These windows were restored in 1985 when we relocated to Northfield. Our pews, purchased in 2003, were made on Kibbutz Lavi in Israel
