Yom Shlishi, 3 Tammuz 5777

Building front with menorah

Welcome to Beth Israel - The West Temple. We are a full-service synagogue representing those who reside, generally, 'west of the River'. We celebrate Shabbat with services every week of the year - on both Friday night and Saturday mornings - lead by our Rabbi and/or members of our Ritual Committee.

Our mission is:

  • to provide a center of worship, education, and community for Jews in Cleveland’s western communities;
  • to help our children learn about Jewish traditions and values;
  • to give our members a tolerant and accepting environment in which to develop their own Jewish identities; and,
  • to assure the continuity of our people’s traditions, values, and life.

These efforts, over more than sixty years, strengthen the Jewish community in Northeast Ohio and contribute to our duty of Tikkun Olam - repairing the world.
