Mission: Congregation Beth Israel provides Charlottesville, Albemarle, and surrounding counties with a welcoming Jewish environment in which people can study, worship, socialize and take part in helping others. It strives to meet the needs of the entire Jewish community with Reform, Conservative, and Jewish Renewal services.
I am commonly heard saying this congregation is the best local Jewish community outside of Jerusalem. Members take ownership for the richness and vibrancy of the community and programs, support each other inside and outside of the building, and are thinking in exciting ways about the future of the congregation. The preschool is absolutely top notch, for the kids, and the parents!
