Our Mission

Temple B'nai Israel will be a home for the practice of Reform Judaism in Kalamazoo, foster the connection with the Divine for members of the community, introduce our children to Judaism and provide a forum for lifelong study of Torah.

Our website tells you a little about us. But only by worshiping with us, learning with us and sharing Shabbat with us, will you get to know the real Temple B'nai Israel. We are known for the warmth of our members and our clergy. People feel a part of our family as soon as they meet us.

We’re glad you’ve stopped by, and we invite you to visit us in person soon. You’ll find us to be a diverse, caring, active Jewish community. Temple B'nai Israel welcomes people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, disabilities, national origins, religious or ethnic backgrounds. Jews by birth, Jews by choice, and non-Jews wishing to explore Judaism are welcome at all services and programs

We invite you to explore our website and then visit us!
