Who are we?
We are Congregation Beth Israel, a conservative Jewish congregation that has been serving the Greenville Jewish community for over 105 years. Our purpose is to be a vibrant Jewish community, connected to one another and to God.
At Congregation Beth Israel we come together to celebrate our Judaism with inviting, vibrant, and inclusive programs and services. We are the heart of our Jewish community, linking tradition and innovation. Our diverse community is connected and engaged with each other as we continually redefine what it means to be Jewish today both within and far beyond our walls.
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 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 are invited to find their voice in prayer and thankfulness for the blessings of life. We stand in solidarity with the State of Israel and the people of Israel. And we are committed to the ideals of Tikkun Olam—working together to improve our community and the world around us.
