Led by Rabbi Keith Stern, Temple Beth Avodah is a Reform Jewish synagogue tucked away in a beautiful woodsy corner of Newton, Massachusetts. Founded in 1963, we are pleased to serve the Boston, Brookline, West Roxbury, and the greater Newton and Needham areas for 40 years and counting.
Our mission at Temple Beth Avodah is one of a vibrant Reform Jewish congregation that honors and upholds Jewish values and traditions. Through prayer, ritual, learning, and social action, we seek spiritual growth and connection to God, the Jewish people, to Israel, and to one another. We aspire always to be a warm and welcoming community – one in which our deep love of learning inspires members of all ages, where diversity is treasured, people feel cherished, and where we work passionately to improve the well-being of our world.
