Welcome to Congregation Beth Elohim

We are a close-knit community synagogue in Acton, Massachusetts, about 25 miles northwest of Boston. We draw our membership from over a dozen surrounding cities and towns. Since our founding in 1969 we have been independent and non-affiliated, allowing us to open our doors to all, regardless of religious background or practice. We are a vibrant, diverse, caring and active community. Join us at a service or event!  Click here to learn more about us or to inquire about membership.
