In the heart of Richmond’s stunning and historic Museum District, Temple Beth-El is this city’s address for a Judaism that fuses spirituality with social justice, yesterday’s wisdom with today’s insights. 

We are an exciting center of community, faith, celebration, and learning. We offer many points of access to an invigorating, meaningful, and engaging Jewish life: dynamic and moving prayer; illuminating and relevant learning for all ages; passionate and engaging social activism;nourishing and fulfilling relationships.

We believe that traditional Judaism should be joyous and accessible to people of all backgrounds, ages, and stages. We proudly welcome everyone of all ages and stages into our warm congregational family: Jews by choice and Jews by birth, Jews of all hues, interfaith families, LGBTQ Jews, Jews of all abilities and disabilities, the Jew-curious, and more! We are eager to meet you where you are, welcoming you in to all aspects of our community’s life with no judgments or preconditions. We are here to help you and your family enrich your lives through Judaism and community.

We encourage you to browse our site, come check us out, and stay in touch.

B’rukhim ha-ba’im! Welcome to Temple Beth-El!
