How to create a sacred space at home. Read our little guide here.

Bet David is a sacred community which recognises that every individual is created “Bezelem Elohim” – in the image of God. Inspired by the tenets of Progressive Judaism, we are a place of Jewish worship, learning and assembly; a gathering place to promote the spiritual and educational welfare of our members in a non-judgemental environment. Our focus is to build a caring inclusive community, designed to welcome individuals and families of various Jewish lifestyles, family structures and needs.

Founded in 1971, Congregation Bet David is a Progressive Jewish congregation. Bet David is a warm, welcoming, and inclusive congregation that invites individuals and families of all observance levels to worship and learn with us.

At Bet David, you will find a community that is as vibrant and evolving as you are. You’ll discover a diverse congregation engaged in social issues, culture and learning – a congregation rediscovering Jewish values that give meaning and provide a strong foundation to face the challenges of contemporary life.
