THE BEIS IS AN INTENTIONAL, INCLUSIVE, INNOVATIVE ORTHODOX JEWISH COMMUNITY THAT PROVIDES A HOME FOR PEOPLE LOOKING TO EXPLORE THEIR JUDAISM, TO CONNECT WITH OTHERS, AND TO BE INSPIRED.
The Beis Community was started in 2013 when a bunch of Jews living in a big city felt like their neighborhood should feel more like home. Maybe something with a little intimacy, intention, and spirit, more diversity, welcomeness, and inclusion, and values that reflected their own and would speak to a broader audience. And when people started coming, they realized they were onto something, that lots of people were also looking for that.
The Values of the Beis are
Creating a Home: Cultivating a welcoming community that actively invites Jews of all or no backgrounds to engage with Jewish life and Judaism
Spirituality: Infusing our lives with intention and Godliness through prayer, Torah study, and creativity that is innovative and renewed
Empowering Participation: Creating avenues for active participation to cultivate individuals’ potentials and help us to realize the potential of our kehillah (community)
Human connection: People-centered focus with an emphasis on welcomeness, inclusivity, and connecting people
