WELCOME TO TEMPLE BETH ISRAEL

Temple Beth Israel is a warm, dynamic Reform Synagogue of over 400 families that serves the Pomona and San Gabriel Valleys of Southern California, approx. 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. At TBI you will find a community that celebrates Jewish tradition,  kindles spiritual fulfillment, values Jewish study in all its variety, and vigorously participates in social justice.
Please join us!  Jews in all their diversity, including families, singles, couples, interfaith families, the LGBT community, and people with special needs are all welcome at TBI.

Note: Interactive participation on Zoom is password protected, but viewable by all on Facebook and on YouTube. Please consider leaving a comment or greeting. Contact the TBI Office for access assistance.

Check out our @TBIPomona Facebook Page where you can get the
latest info and view info about our upcoming Shabbat services and other events held online.

Want to re-experience our High Holy Day worship?  Our services are archived on Facebook and YouTube and Streamspot.

Our TBI Preschool reopened on August 31st and our students are playing, learning, and thriving just as they have for over 30 years as we observe the proper guidelines and procedures. Find out how your child can join them.  Info here.

(Please note that a password is required to view the “Kehillah”)


PLEASE NOTE: We want to remind you that all TBI sponsored interactive online events on ZOOM now require a password in order to participate. This does not affect the opportunity to view Zoom gatherings that we share on our regular or preschool Facebook pages or that are streamed on Facebook directly. In addition, all those calling in on their phones and not using the Zoom app will be asked to identify themselves by a host.  We also now require that anyone joining on Zoom through a computer or app, whether you have activated a camera or not, must identify themselves clearly with their name displayed.  Those wishing to  join Zoom events by cellphone or landline without using an app or program can still do so, but must request password prior to accessing by an email to cantor@tbipomona.org.We look forward to sharing the events above with you and your family.

It’s particularly useful in times such as these when we are doing a lot of shopping remotely. We can also  arrange for your scrip to be delivered to you! And, it’s great for gift giving too!  Download the form here.  You can also pay for your Scrip online here where you can also make other financial contributions to support our community.
