The CBH website: Your source for information about Congregation Bet Haverim, located in Davis, California
Founded in 1961, Congregation Bet Haverim still counts among its members some of the “first families” who began a Jewish fellowship in Yolo County in order to share simchas, sorrows and faith with friends who felt like family.
Today, Bet Haverim continues in the spirit of our founders by welcoming the full range of diverse Jewish and interfaith families: single parents, singles, multi-cultural and multi-racial families, gays and lesbians, people of all ages and people with special needs.
As Yolo County’s only synagogue, the congregational family includes more that 280 member households, and offers an on-site Sunday school and Hebrew school, in addition to Gan Haverim, Yolo County’s only Jewish preschool. Adult education opportunities, spirituality programming and holiday celebrations are also at the core of the vibrant and dynamic synagogue experience at Bet Haverim.

A Caring Community: Tikkun Olam
Opportunities to repair the world by performing mitzvot and giving tzedakah are plentiful at Bet Haverim.
Ongoing efforts include:
Social Action Committee – local and Bet Haverim-based initiatives
Mazon partner synagogue – a Jewish response to hunger, and support of Davis Community Meals
Biberstein Social Action Fund – benefiting Yolo County non-profits
Religious School tzedakah program and B’nai Mitzvah projects
Mitzvah Meals program – feeding the ill and bereaved of our Bet Haverim community
Support of interfaith and community-wide humanitarian efforts, such as the Celebration of Abraham, Dear Sudan, Love, Davis/Woodand, and Adopt-a-Social Worker.
Mitzvah Day highlights the Jewish principle of Tikkun Olam. It is a day to help primarily local area charities and organizations that benefit greatly from just a few hours of our time and effort. We welcome your help in planning and implementing this congregation-wide, annual event. For more information, contact Shoshana Zatz at firstname.lastname@example.org
