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!

Some of us make people laugh. Some of us teach. Some of us bake. Some of us play music. Some of us hit a ball with a bat. Some of us draw. Some of us heal others. Some of us inspire. Some of us put words to paper. Some of us organize things (and/or people). […]
We live in a time and in a political culture where “the ends justify the means.” We are so concerned with achieving our goals that we don’t care how they are achieved. Want to stop immigration? Separate immigrant and refugee children from their parents because hopefully it will scare them away. Want to stop abortion? […]
The leaves are just starting to turn to fall colors – a phenomenon which often serves as a metaphor for the cycle of life. And the cycle, as it always does, has turned. Temple Beth Hillel has been affected, no devastated, by two sudden deaths. Within a week we lost Alan Sagle and Jay Weidenfeld. […]
