With an Austin feel and temperament which is distinctly Jewish, Congregation Beth El is open and welcoming to all visitors. An independent traditional conservative congregation, we are a vibrant community of families and individuals, seeking to create an environment that is spiritual, warm and inviting, without pretension or unnecessary formality.

Beth El is literally a Beit Knesset, a House of Worship. Located in a converted duplex, don’t let the outward appearance of the building fool you. Inside is a friendly, welcoming and spiritual community. Since our founding in 1981, our members have treated each other like an extended family. Our members backgrounds range from orthodox to reform, from Jews by choice to intermarriages.  We are connected by our friendships, our desire for meaningful prayer and Jewish practice, and a desire to lead a more Jewish life.

Our children play together and learn Torah values together. The adults, directed by Cantor Yitzhak Ben-Moshe pray together and grow in the knowledge of our faith and work on applying the lessons of the Torah to our modern, fast-paced lives.

Children are welcome at all services and we offer programs for children of all ages, including Shabbat services for children and Hebrew school. In addition, we offer adult education classes for those who are interested in learning more about their faith.

Congregation Beth El is located at 8902 Mesa Drive, in Northwest Austin near the Dell Jewish Community Campus with easy access to Mopac, Hwy 183, and 360.
