COVID-19 Update

One of the highest Jewish values is the preservation of life. In order to contribute to the social distancing necessary to stanch this pandemic, our synagogue has closed the building for all services and programming until further notice. 

Our building is closed but our synagogue is open! We have moved our services, educational programs, and other activities online, as much as possible.  We are sending out emails and posting on social media to update congregants and community members on our activities.  We have also launched a new hard copy newsletter, BI@Home, which is being mailed to all of our congregants at their home addresses.

The calendar on this website lists many of our upcoming activities.  For details or information on how to log in to Zoom meetings, look in emails you received or call the office, (508) 756-6204.  Office staff are available from 10:00 to 3:00, Monday to Friday.

Feel free to reach out to the Rabbi or the office if you would like a call, text, video chat, or email. In addition, if you are diagnosed with COVID-19, please inform Rabbi Fellman, Rabbi@bethisraelworc.org, so that we know and can support you.  If you are not feeling well, let us know.  If you are feeling isolated, please reach out.  We are physically separated but remain a caring, sacred community.

If you need to deliver something in hard copy to the synagogue (checks, documents, etc), we have arranged for contactless delivery.  On the Chapel side of the synagogue (by the large parking lot) there is a lock box that you can use to drop off envelopes while social distancing.  It is installed in the wall, so it can be accessed any time, whether staff are present or not.  And, of course, you can also send your checks or other documents via postal mail.  

 

Welcome to Congregation Beth Israel

We like to say that Beth Israel feels like family. And we mean it. This is a religious community that cares ⎯ if you have a simcha to share, if you're sick, if you experience a loss, if you're new to Worcester and looking for a place to find fellow Jews, if you just need to talk. We come from different backgrounds, levels of religious observance and walks of life, but we're bound together by our shared commitment to Conservative Judaism and each other. Please take a look around our website to learn more . . .
