Welcome To TBI

Since 1930, Temple Beth Israel has led the way for Progressive Jewish life in Melbourne. TBI is a community dedicated to providing relevant and accessible pathways for Jewish engagement. 

We believe in a living Judaism that respects our history while also engaging with the opportunities and challenges of the modern world.

TBI offers a wide range of programs, classes, services, lifecycle events, festivals, choirs, and clubs, and we welcome members and friends from the breadth of the Jewish community. We actively focus on inclusion, equality, social justice and human rights.
