Temple Beth Israel is many things: a beautiful house of worship, a beehive of activity for educational, cultural and social programs, a place to share, celebrate and pursue tikkun olam, a staunch supporter of the State of Israel, and an opportunity to experience our precious Jewish heritage through a range of stimulating dimensions.
Though the Temple serves as the Center of Jewish Life on Longboat Key, Beth Israel includes members from Sarasota and Bradenton. We are primarily an adult community with few families with school-age children. Sixty percent of our members are full-time residents who are either fully or semi-retired.
We take pride that our members are leaders not only in local Jewish and secular organizations but in nationally and international ones as well.
Tour our web site to learn more about just how much Temple Beth Israel has to offer. We think you’ll find our expressions of the Jewish spirit relevant and enriching.
