Congregation Beth HaTephila

An Engaging, Inclusive, Reform Congregation in the Blue Ridge Mountains




Jewish learning is a lifelong undertaking, and has been valued since the birth of Judaism. “Take to heart these instructions with which I charge you this day. Impress them upon your children. Recite them when you stay at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as sign on your hand and let them serve as a symbol on your forehead; inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and your gates” (Deut. 6:6-9).

CBHT is a community committed to the shared practice of lifelong learning that nourishes the mind, heart and soul. We believe the Jewish community is stronger when we are engaged in a journey of continued learning and growth.

At all ages and stages, shared Jewish learning offers us intellectual challenge, spiritual enrichment, and the opportunity to form deep and sustaining friendships. We stimulate one another's minds and hearts by questioning our thoughts and engaging in discussion. Learning together we pursue expansive thought, fearless engagement, and understanding in ways that are accessible and relevant to our lives. Our connection to Jewish life is a point of connection to the world and is enhanced in this generation and in future generations.
