L'shana Tova! Join Temple Beth Hillel for the High Holy Days
Temple Beth Hillel, located just off Hilltop Drive at I-80 in Richmond, California is an intimate, warm and wonderful congregation of Jewish families from West Contra Costa County and beyond. Being small (approx.80 families) fosters familiarity among members and a special sense of belonging – a sense often missing at larger congregations.
Founded in 1946, Temple Beth Hillel offers a place to celebrate Shabbat (twice a month or more), the Holidays and Festivals (including a Hanukkah Latke Party, Tu B’Shevat Seder, Purim Carnival, Congregational Passover Seder) and other celebrations.
Join us for a Shabbat Service – come to a Family Potluck (1st Shabbat evening of the month) – celebrate the High Holidays – experience Temple Beth Hillel and join us in building our community, the community of Jewish families of West Contra Costa and beyond.
Whether you’re new to the San Francisco Bay area or a long time resident, and you’re looking for a reform synagogue to join in the East Bay, Temple Beth Hillel welcomes you!
Join us for Shabbat
Join us in person or online – multiaccess Shabbat services first and third Friday of the month. Online candle lighting available on alternating weeks. Check the calendar for times.

We live in a time when our most fundamental national institutions are being questioned:the conduct of free and fair elections, the veracity of the press, and even our courts. When a judge makes a ruling these days, the media will often specify which president appointed them. As if that explains a bias that might disqualify […]
Shalom Everyone! And our Religious School is off and running! We had our first class this past Sunday and it was so wonderful to see all the kids together again. As a reminder, all those who wish to join us for our Tefillah services are welcome on any Sunday at 9:30 a.m. The Religious School […]
This Shabbat we have two Torah portions: Re’eh (Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17) and a special portion (Numbers 28:9-15) in honor of the new month (Rosh Chodesh) Elul. Elul precedes the High Holy Days and is a special month to be set aside for reflection and growth. This is a time of preparation so that we enter the […]
