Welcome to TBI

Temple Beth Israel is a vibrant, diverse, traditional and close-knit congregation. We are an independent synagogue that seeks to provide spiritual, social and physical access to and inclusion in meaningful Jewish life and tradition.  We enjoy a full calendar of religious, social, educational and social justice dialogue and activities for the many ways our congregants and friends connect to Judaism, to their community, and to the world at large. With a 100+ year history in Waltham, on any given day we find members who were born into Temple Beth Israel warmly embracing newcomers.
