    For more than 150 years, Congregation Beth Elohim (CBE) has been serving the Brooklyn community with a dedication to the Jewish values of Torah (learning and spirituality), avodah (service), chesed (acts of loving kindness) and tikkun olam (repairing the world). Our ideals are based on the tenets of Reform Judaism: we are pluralistic, intellectually curious, spiritual, and constantly evolving.

Why Should You Join?


We pride ourselves on being a warm, diverse, engaged, and sacred community comprised of people who support each other in moments of both celebration and sorrow. We welcome all who seek a connection to Jewish life regardless of religious background or beliefs, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, or abilities.

CBE has something for everyone, at every stage of life. We offer open and experiential programs from early childhood through high school. Our Early Childhood Center, Yachad (K-12 Jewish and Hebrew Education program), after school programs, and day camps serve not only the congregation, but also the broader Brooklyn community. Our myriad educational and cultural programs for adults, including Torah Study classes and our acclaimed Brooklyn By the Book speaker series feature faculty and visitors from around the globe.
