Our Mission Statement
Temple Beth Torah is a congregation that embraces the philosophy and values of Judaism by:
- Spiritually, by celebrating the richness and traditions of Torah, prayer, holidays and life cycle events;
- Educationally, by encouraging learning, increasing Jewish knowledge and enriching understanding for children, teenagers and adults;
- Compassionately, by caring for our members and others in the Jewish community in times of need while also fostering positive relationships with our non-Jewish neighbors. Temple Beth Torah embraces the spirit of inclusion for Jewish individuals and families who represent a variety of backgrounds and family compositions.
Temple Beth Torah was founded in 1983 by a group of Jewish families who felt strongly that we needed a synagogue to serve the Humble-Kingwood area. Initially meeting at members houses and other venues, we purchased our current home in 1989. From the outset, Temple Beth Torah has been a driving force in the Jewish religious community in northeast Houston. In 1997, we completed a major renovation of our sanctuary which was designed and constructed by our members.
