Congregation Beth Israel, a Reform Jewish Congregation in Scottsdale, Arizona, has been and continues to be a warm home for people of every age and lifestyle. CBI welcomes visitors and guests to weekly, uplifting Shabbat services and countless programs throughout the year. As a community, our love of Judaism provides a key foundation and meaningful bond. We strive to infuse Jewish values in everything we do. Founded in 1920, CBI is the oldest synagogue in Phoenix. We are proud of the heritage and legacy provided by those who have come before us and we embrace the future with their same passion.

We welcome you to explore the many opportunities to be engaged with the CBI community and your Judaism. We hope you take advantage of not just our meaningful religious services but also our rich, diverse range of Programming options.

Sacred Spaces

Congregation Beth Israel has been in its current location since 1997. We are pleased to maintain a campus comprising several special components. Our main sanctuary is warm and bright, providing a vibrant locale for communal worship and other events. The Roth Family Chapel incorporates the Ark doors and stained glass windows from the congregation's previous sanctuary at 10th Avenue and Osborn in Phoenix. It provides an intimate space for services and life cycle events.

The ballroom is a large, multipurpose space perfect for receptions, luncheons and other functions. The space is available for rent for Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, Wedding receptions, and other large scale events. The ballroom is versatile and has been used for glamorous galas and rousing receptions.

Education is a cornerstone of the Congregation Beth Israel community. The facility includes the Haberkorn religious school, the Chanen preschool, the Feffer library, and the Sylvia Plotkin Judaica Museum. Our religious school and preschool provide a fertile environment to cultivate and foster a lifelong commitment to Jewish learning. CBI has one of the largest Judaic library collections in the Southwest with over 12,000 volumes. The Plotkin Judaica Museum is a unique place housing a permanent collection and hosting traveling exhibits throughout the year.

Congregation Beth Israel is also proud to make two especially unique, sacred spaces available to the Phoenix Jewish community: Camp Daisy and Harry Stein and the Jill and Jay Stein Family Mikveh. Camp Stein, located in the cool pines of Prescott, Arizona, is one of the few overnight Jewish summer camps in the entire Southwest. For more than 36 years, the camp has been molding Jewish minds and instilling a love of Judaism. The Stein Family Mikveh provides members of the entire Phoenix Jewish community a place to find spiritual and ritual purity. It is used for conversions, for Rosh Chodesh, as well as weddings and B'nai Mitzvah.
