Welcome to Congregation Beth Elohim —

an egalitarian, community synagogue located in Acton, Massachusetts. Independent and non-affiliated, we welcome diversity, including individuals and interfaith families, regardless of age, race, gender, economic or family status, ethnic background, mental or physical ability, or sexual orientation. We draw our membership from surrounding towns including Ayer, Bolton, Boxborough, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Concord, Groton, Harvard, Littleton, Stow, and Westford. As an oasis of Jewish life far from areas of high Jewish concentration, we embrace independence in our practice of Judaism. We combine an appreciation for the sanctity of Jewish traditions with a sensitivity to the needs of a population which is religiously diverse.   We have a commitment to social justice that is informed by the core Jewish values that reflect the identity and priorities of our community and we strive everyday to build and maintain an anti-racist Jewish community. Our leadership is committed to the personal and spiritual growth of our members, providing guidance and support throughout life's journey.  We offer a Jewish-themed preschool, and a K–11th grade religious school.
