In consideration of the facts we know today and on the advice of local doctors and CDC guidelines —and for safety of our congregants, clergy, and staff — we have made the difficult decision to host the High Holy Days virtually. While we wish we could join together in person, we believe it is the best decision we can make given these unprecedented circumstances. Our goal is to keep our members safe while providing enriching, inspiring, and spiritual services for everyone in our congregation.
There have been instances of YouTube removing videos because of music licensing issues. Therefore, we are posting all services on multiple platforms, and links will also be available on our Facebook page. Please note that virtual services will not be accessible until 15 minutes prior to the beginning of each service.

Welcome to Temple Beth Or, a historic Reform Jewish congregation in Montgomery, Alabama. We offer many and diverse paths to participate in our temple community. For some, the path is through worship, for others, opportunities to pursue social action and join in social gatherings. Education, both youth and adult, is important to many, and a sense of belonging to a community is often central. Whatever your reason or reasons, please come and visit.
All are welcome at our Shabbat service every Friday evening, usually held between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Please check our Calendar for specific timing and other events you may find of interest.
