Congregation Beth El is a proud supporter of Israel. Our members help fund projects in Israel through Federation, Hadassah, the Jewish National Fund, the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism, trips, and more. Throughout the year, Beth El holds special progams and speakers to learn more about Israel.
We follow the stories of Israel closely and we stand with our Israeli cousins in their quest for peace. We also support the Reform Movement's work in Israel making that country a more inviting place for Jewish pluralism.

In addition, Rabbi Katz leads bi-annual Interfaith study trips to Israel with Rev. Stuart Baskin of First Presbyterian Church in Tyler. The next trip will take place in March of 2018. Anyone is welcome to sign up. For more information, please visit:
