 Shalom Aleichem


Welcome! Temple B’nai Israel is a Reform synagogue community where Jewish life is joyous, engaging, and welcoming. Our temple has been a fixture in the Kalamazoo community for 150 years. TBI is one of the oldest congregations in the Midwest and one of the 34 founding members of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations.

  Together we live the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) through social justice, caring networks and strong and vibrant education offerings for all ages; from toddlers to seniors.

 We are proud to be a safe space for all our friends and family within the LGBTQ family.

 We are open to all pursuing fulfillment in a Jewish life, be it interfaith families, unaffiliated Jews, or anyone seeking a Jewish connection.
