About Us

Temple Beth El is Michigan’s first Jewish congregation and has been a leader in the Reform movement for generations. Ideally located in Bloomfield Hills, we are an easy drive from West Bloomfield, Birmingham, or any of the surrounding suburbs. Come in to experience our caring clergy, innovative programs, inspiring worship, lifelong learning, and meaningful volunteer opportunities.

And please take advantage of our website to learn more about this warm, inviting community.

“You shall be holy, for I, Adonai your God, am holy”

(Leviticus 19:2)

I have always believed that these words, from the Torah portion we read each year on Yom Kippur, define our fundamental purpose. At Temple Beth El, we are dedicated to bringing more holiness into the world every day. We do this through…

  • Community: Building strong relationship
  • Learning: Exploring the beauty and depth of Jewish tradition
  • Israel: Engaging in a positive fashion with the land, people, and state of Israel
  • Joy: Celebrating Shabbat, holidays, and happy occasions together
  • Care: Supporting one another through difficult times
  • Tikkun Olam: Working hard to make our Temple, our city, and our world a better place

On behalf of the clergy, staff, lay leadership, and more than 1,100 families who make up our Temple family, I want to welcome you to Temple Beth El. Whether it’s online, on the phone, or in person, we look forward to getting to know you!
