Our Mission

Temple Beth Israel is a small and vibrant Reform Jewish congregation, and a vital resource for Jewish life in northern New York.  We welcome diverse traditions and lifestyles into our congregational family, and offer a meaningful Jewish experience to all who enter our doors.  Every individual enriches our community and our Jewish identity and has a spiritual home in Temple Beth Israel.

We share the responsibility and commitment to provide:

  • A sanctuary for worship and a place for reflection, comfort, and peace

  • A house of learning for ourselves, our children, and our neighbors

  • A gathering place to celebrate our culture, holidays, and life-cycle events

  • A community that inspires us, individually and collectively, to contribute to the well-being of our world
