Temple B'nai Israel is a small congregation that embraces Jews of every denomination, age and background. With our celebration of diversity, we welcome everyone, including Traditional, Conservative, and Reform Jews. Furthermore, our many Interfaith families also participate fully in our religious services, educational programs, and social activities. Established in 1904, we've been a mainstay for over a century in Aurora and the surrounding area. As always, our goal is to enrich each of our members through continued devotion to prayer, Jewish values, education, and social action.

On behalf of Rabbi Edward Friedman and our entire congregation, we encourage you

to explore our community and to contact us with any questions.
