Yom Sheini, 2 Tammuz 5777


Beit Haverim is an open, inviting, and spiritually alive Jewish community, located just outside of Portland, Oregon in Lake Oswego. Beit Haverim began in 1992 as South Metro Jewish Community located in West Linn, Oregon, and in 1998 SMJC evolved into a congregation. In 2007 SMJC adopted the Hebrew name of Beit Haverim, expressing the essence of who we are – a House of Friends.

We welcome everyone to our Reform congregation of Jews by birth, Jews by choice, and Jews at heart. A congregation where families and individuals experience the sense of Jewish belonging that comes from shared worship, religious instruction, Tikkun Olam, and social events at a location not too far from home.



A very special event:  

Borders and Identity Forum: A Call to Action
Monday, June 26 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Beit Haverim is one of the sponsors of an exciting forum at the Temple.  

We’re planning small group discussions following the viewing of a special video that will be geared toward each participant generating her/his personal commitment to action in support of historically marginalized peoples. Please check out the flyer here and plan to join us with several other organizations to make our world a better place.


Everyone is welcome and there is no charge for this event.


 Family Potluck Shabbat around the table:  July 9th at 6:00 pm
