About Temple B’nai Chaim

Temple B’nai Chaim is a modern Reform congregation inspired by over 3000 years of tradition.  We believe in a living Judaism compatible with contemporary science, historical understanding, and ethical sensibilities, and which reflects everyday reality and is refined by it.  We are a member congregation of the Union for Reform Judaism.

TBC is open for in-person services in our beautiful sanctuary.  All are welcome! See our events calendar for dates and times.

In the Spotlight!

This ADL program is an interactive workshop for TBC members (only) to learn how to become empowered to have difficult conversations and interrupt antisemitism when it happens.

Note: This is a workshop for adults; it is not focused on teaching parents & grandparents how to talk to children about antisemitism. Guidance for talking to children is upcoming through the TBC Religious school.

A TBC member has contributed the funding for this workshop, and ALL members are encouraged to attend. Nosh will be available!
