Temple Israel of Long Beach is a vibrant Synagogue family that warmly embraces all Jews, regardless of affiliation, commitment or background. We are affectionately known as the "Bayit". Just as a Bayit (a home) is a place of love and welcome, this is our most fundamental message, to welcome everyone and make you feel comfortable. TI fosters a full and joyous way of life, proudly rooted in the practice of Traditional Judaism and committed to Jewish values as embodied in the Torah and the observance of Halacha (Jewish Law). We promote education, spiritual well-being and community, dedicated to the promotion of Traditional Jewish practices.
