Anti-Semitism, which was a leader in the movement to provide justice for Soviet Jewry, many of whom repatriated to the Cleveland area.
We were established nearly sixty-eight years ago by a small group of individuals, most of whom were NASA scientists, who had a strong desire to create a new Jewish community on Cleveland’s West Side. The founding members had a vision to help strengthen the Jewish community in Northeast Ohio and contribute to our duty of tikkun olam – repairing the world.
BI-TWT is a vibrant congregation of Jews-by-birth, Jews-by-choice, interfaith families and couples, and people of varying Jewish backgrounds and knowledge of Judaism. We are welcoming of all and are proud of the diversity of race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, and gender identity represented within our membership.
Our congregation’s mission is to provide a center of worship, education, and community for Jews in Cleveland’s western suburbs. We have a Religious School that serves our community, as it has for decades. The Religious School provides a positive Jewish education founded on Jewish traditions, values, and ethics, for students in grades PK-12.
Our congregation offers our members a warm, welcoming, and inclusive environment in which to develop their own Jewish identities and supports the continuity of our people’s traditions, values, and lives.
