Welcome to Congregation Beth El. We are so glad you stopped by to visit us. We are a small Reform Jewish congregation with a big heart located in Tyler, Texas. Tyler is in the middle of East Texas, about half-way between Dallas and Shreveport. We have been an active part of the religious landscape of Tyler since our congregational charter in 1887. We invite you to browse our website to learn more about our congregational history, our schedule of worship services, temple programs, read our monthly newsletter, ask our rabbi a question and more! 


Shabbat services are currently being held ONLINE ONLY at 7:00pm each Friday night.

Join us on Zoom
(for the most interactive experience). The Zoom links will be posted here, in our calendar, and on Facebook.


Anyone can join - but the service on Zoom is

We will also be simulcasting on Facebook Live if you choose to join us there.
