Independent Jewish Synagogue in Asheville, NC

Jewish Life

Independent. Egalitarian. Transformational.

Congregation Beth Israel is proud to be Asheville’s only independent, fully egalitarian, spiritual community. Together, we live out the meaning of our name: a “house for those who struggle with God.” We believe the power of Jewish prayer is the unique state of “being alone, together”.

We have a variety of ways to make it happen. Weekly Shabbat and holiday services, monthly Jewish meditation and family-based education that reminds us of our responsibility to ourselves, each other and the earth.

Pick one that works for you and join us.
