About Us

"Our open community creates engaging and diverse Jewish pathways for Tikkun haNefesh (improving our lives) and Tikkun Olam (improving our world)."


Temple Beth-El has been serving the reform Jewish community of Florida's Suncoast since 1928.

Located in beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida, our Synagogue offers a dynamic spiritual and social meeting place for families and individuals of all ages. Founded by a small group of dedicated community leaders who were among the first Jewish settlers on Florida's West Coast, our Temple has come to stand for renewed spiritual growth, outreach and service to the community.

The membership outgrew its original small home in downtown St. Petersburg, moving to our present location in 1955, and completing the Religious School addition in 2002 to meet the needs of our 430 families.

Today, the Temple is the hub of family life, rich with diverse educational, social and religious programs for the youngest members to those very young at heart.

Temple Beth-El is located at 400 Pasadena Avenue South St. Petersburg, FL 33707 Please feel free to contact the Temple for more information, (727) 347-6136.
