Temple Beth-El is a Reform Congregation in Northbrook, IL, that welcomes and serves all families and individuals who seek to be part of a Jewish community committed to uplifting the human spirit, life-long education and community service. 

At Temple Beth-El, our goal is to promote the understanding and interpretation of Jewish history, tradition and culture and the practice of Jewish ritual, relevant to contemporary life.

Our congregation welcomes the entire spectrum of our Jewish community: people of all ages, races, and abilities; interfaith families; and people who are single, partnered, and the LGBTQ community.

For Temple Beth-El members, life is a celebration through Avodah (in our worship), Torah (in our study), Tikkun Olam (repair the world) and G’milut Chasadim (deeds of loving kindness). Through strong collaboration between our clergy and lay leadership, we endeavor to create a communal center for our members and to encourage participation in all aspects of congregational life.

Woven throughout the fabric of our spirituality, our education and community service is our dedication to and support for the Jewish people and its homeland in Israel and throughout the world.
