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?

In Solidarity

We are mourning and struggling to find comfort in light of the October 27 massacre at the Tree of Life, Or L'Simcha synagogue in Pittsburgh. It is a shul with close ties to some in our community, and we are all feeling sad, angry and vulnerable. We honor our sisters and brothers in Pittsburgh by continuing to live our lives and proving that we are not going to disappear.

We aim to keep our Holy Spaces safe and special and ask for your cooperation and understanding as we continue to adjust and implement appropriate security measures for our synagogue and community. Please know that Rabbi Fellman and the community are here and available if you need support.
