About Us

Chanukah Poster

Welcome to Temple Beth El!

We are a regional center for Jewish spiritually, culture and learning in Humboldt County. We are an inclusive congregation with participants from all streams of Jewish life and observance. We are a welcoming congregation.

The congregation was established in 1954. Our lovely building, including beautiful local redwood paneling and craftsmanship, was dedicated in 1964. Beginning in 1960 we have been affiliated with Union of Reform Judaism (URJ).

We offer weekly Shabbat services in a variety of modalities and traditions—led by the Rabbi and members of the community. Every Shabbat morning we have a lively, member-led Torah study. We enthusiastically celebrate the Jewish holidays. We sponsor a wide range of guest presenters to expand our cultural, spiritual and religious life. Our Children’s Education Program strives to provide meaningful, enjoyable Jewish education culminating in a joyful Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration.
We encourage you to explore our website and introduce yourself to our members.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
