***A Jewish Reconstructionist Community in association with The Reconstructionist Rabbinical College; click on the heading above to learn more about the Jewish Reconstructionist movement.
Located in beautiful Marion County, the heart of Florida horse country, Congregation Beth Israel of Ocala is a liberal, progressive, inclusive congregation. We welcome individuals and families of all Jewish lifestyles, marital status, gender, race, age and sexual orientation into our community. Beth Israel is a place where you can grow spiritually.
For the first time in over thirty-five years a new congregation has been formed to meet the needs of the Jewish community of Ocala. We are starting our sixth year and are offering a fresh new approach to Judiasm. We have affiliated with the Reconstructionist movement because it offers a balance between tradition and modern, contemporary American life. We are proud to be affiliated members.
We have chosen the Etz Chaim, Tree of Life, as our logo to symbolize our willingness to grow and to accept others with open arms as we journey on our pathway to God.
Our mission is to provide an environment for the Jewish community of Ocala and the surrounding areas for worship, fellowship, and learning.
Rabbi Karen Allen
We warmly invite all members of the community to join us!
