Welcome to Beth Hillel Temple

Reform Judaism is thriving at Beth Hillel Temple, where the spiritual needs of Jews living in Southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois are met. We are a warm and caring community that comes together to celebrate Jewish life and culture.

 

Meaningful services, innovative programming, and quality education are offered for all ages. The size of our small but growing membership of 137 families enables us to have rich intergenerational experiences, involved members, and a community that feels like an extended family. We welcome all who wish to celebrate Jewish life: families, singles and couples, gay and lesbian Jews, interfaith couples, and Jews by choice.

 

Beth Hillel is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism. The congregation was founded in 1924/25, and our building was erected in 1927. We are proud to have just completed a project to remodel our building and make it accessible to all.

BHT Reopening Committee Update

We are taking our guidance from the Kenosha Kickstart plan, CDC, and religious organizations including the Wisconsin Council of Rabbis, the Wisconsin Council of Churches, and the Milwaukee Jewish Federation. We reviewed the Kenosha Kickstart plan gating criteria. At this time, we have determined that the risks of opening the temple outweigh the benefits. Temple programming continues remotely.

We received a starter kit of personal protective equipment (PPE) from Milwaukee Jewish Federation. Philipp went back to the office on 6/17. The rabbi remains at home. Temple members are not allowed in the building at this time. Any workers (contractors, construction, service) entering the building are asked to wear PPE and follow social distancing. The committee will meet on July 1 to reevaluate when congregants can be allowed in the building to do business.

The committee has decided that High Holy Day Services will be remote. There has been discussion about the possibility of in-person small groups. The temple is holding Town Halls to get congregant input. The next Town Hall is July 9th at 7PM. Zoom link is in the e-news.

The possibility of outdoor services and youth activities in August is under review. The decision to proceed will depend on improvement in COVID cases in the area that doesn’t exist at this time. A preliminary protocol has been drafted.
