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. 100 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 for celebration of 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.
The Temple has a thriving Religious School (grades pre-K through Bar/Bat Mitzvah year) and an affiliation with Midrasha in Berkeley for high school students.
For adults, Rabbi Dean Kertesz is leading a Kollel for adults to study a wide range of Jewish topics.
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 joins us in building our community, the community of Jewish families of West Contra Costa and beyond.
If you’re new to the San Francisco Bay area and are looking for a reform synagogue to join in the East Bay, Temple Beth Hillel welcomes you!
