Shalom Y'all & Welcome
During the current crisis, our office remains active and our rabbi is available for your pastoral needs by phone and video conferencing ONLY.
We are conducting our services according to a "Hybrid" model. For those who are willing to follow strict safety protocols, we are holding in-person Shabbat and Holy Day services outdoors under tented shade-cover. We are also simultaneously streaming all services and events through Zoom. To protect the sanctity of our space, ALL Zoom meetings will require a PASSWORD. Contact the office to receive your password.
You may also download a PDF of the prayerbook (we use Siddur Lev Shalem: Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat Evening Service, and Siddur Lev Shalem: Shabbat Morning Service), by clicking HERE.
BE RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE, RIGHT HERE.
Where are you?
Everyone is somewhere on a path...and on a path to somewhere. Whereever you are, you are welcome with us.
Who are we?
We are Congregation Beth Israel, serving the Greenville Jewish community for over 100 years.
We embrace the idea of meeting people “where they are,” offering a safe and encouraging environment regardless of age, gender, socio-economic status, race, level of education, family structure, interfaith union, or sexual identification and orientation. All who seek may come to find their voice in prayer and thankfulness for the blessings of life.
Proud members of USCJ (The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism), we are here to meet the spiritual, social, cultural and educational needs of modern Jews, while remaining true to the traditional roots of our faith.
We practice a robust and authentic Judaism emphasizing music, food, spirit, Jewish ethics, education, and egalitarianism; respecting tradition but remaining open to new thoughts and ideas.
We strive to provide for our congregational family at every stage of the Jewish life-cycle: from baby naming, to religious school and b’nai mitzvah training, and through interactive services and adult education programming.
We stand in solidarity with the State of Israel and the people Israel.
And we are committed to the ideals of Tikkun Olam – working together to improve our community and the world around us.
Building Community Since 1916
