Membership meeting and elections Sunday Jan 29
Beth Israel Congregation is in our second century, first having first conducted services in 1909. We have been in our present location since 1974, and currently have about 50 families that make up our membership.
Beth Israel Congregation is an inclusive Jewish congregation that offers a welcoming, nurturing and enriching home to those who seek a meaningful and enduring connection to Judaism. Mindful of its heritage and participation in the greater community, the Congregation supports the diverse spiritual, educational, and social needs of its members.
At present, the congregation remains unaffiliated and prides itself on being eclectic in its services. We draw extensively from the traditional liturgy, as well as from reconstructionist and reform approaches to Judaism. Our members come from Greeley, Estes Park to Fort Morgan, Bellvue to Erie
Activities of the congregation include services, the Hebrew Progressive Sisterhood, adult education, Weld county food bank, and Greeley interfaith social action. The religious school has materials for home study and awaits its next generation of students. Life cycle events such as B'nai Mitzvot, weddings, funerals, and baby namings occur periodically. Our facility includes a sanctuary, social hall, library with a fiction and non-fiction collection, classrooms, a Kosher kitchen, and a children's room. The congregation administers a Jewish cemetery east of Greeley in Linn Grove.
