Welcome to Temple Beth Hillel

We are a dynamic Reform congregation firmly rooted in the past, yet intent upon creating a meaningful future for ourselves, and the home of families and individuals who seek to consecrate the greater moments of their lives within a setting of sanctity.

Our Temple is a house of prayer to which we come to read aloud or alone, silently or responsively, with words or with melody.

Our Temple is a house of study where children and adults engage in the incredible task of acquiring Jewish knowledge.

Our Temple is a house of gathering in order to do the work of God.

Our Temple is all these and more.
