CBI at pride parade 2016Join your Congregation Beth Israel family in marching to support the LGBTQ community at Bellingham’s Pride Parade on Sunday, July 15, 2018. This will be our third consecutive year marching as a community in solidarity behind a banner at the Pride Parade. Last year we had a huge turnout — let’s try to increase our numbers and show the greater Bellingham LGBTQ community that they have an ally in Congregation Beth Israel.

Parade participants will begin gathering at 10:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Habitat for Humanity, on the corner of Cornwall Avenue and Ohio Street. The parade begins at noon, and ends at Depot Market Square.

What is Reform?

What is Reform Judaism?
Throughout history, Jews have remained firmly rooted in Jewish tradition, even as we learned much from our encounters with other cultures. Nevertheless, since its earliest days, Reform Judaism has asserted that a Judaism frozen in time is an heirloom, not a living fountain.

The positions of the Reform Movement are based primarily in two sources: Resolutions adopted by the Union for Reform Judaism, and resolutions adopted by the Central Conference of American Rabbis.
