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.

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.
