Welcome to Congregation Beth Israel!

We like to say that Beth Israel feels like family. And we mean it. This is a religious community that cares ⎯ if you have a simcha to share, if you're sick, if you experience a loss, if you're new to Worcester and looking for a place to find fellow Jews, if you just need to talk. We come from different backgrounds, levels of religious observance and walks of life, but we're bound together by our shared commitment to Conservative Judaism and each other. Please take a look around our website to learn more . . . and be sure to check out What's Nu?
