Temple Beth David

“…For My House shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”
– Isaiah 56:7

Temple Beth David welcomes you!

Our Reform congregation is a caring, active, diverse and inclusive community that explores and experiences all aspects of Jewish life. Located in Westwood, MA, we serve towns across the Rt. 109 corridor. We invite you to join us in prayer, study, to socialize and learn. We offer activities and opportunities for all age groups and levels of participation.

Please join us!


Temple Beth David is hosting Rhythym ‘N’ Ruach, an interactive, high energy music program led by musical artist and performer Ellen Allard that will give your child a strong connection to Judaism through music, movement, yoga, drumming, and dancing. more…


As we continue to add to our congregational repertoire you can hear this new melody of the week:
“Hashkiveinu” by Dan Nichols is a lovely Hebrew/English setting for this prayer that asks for safety through the night, and it is a version sung in Jewish camps and youth groups. Listen Now!


Come be inspired by Temple Beth David teens as they lead our congregation in worship. Our NAWDTY youth has worked hard to put together a creative service that will be moving and meaningful. If you loved camp/youth group services, you won’t want to miss this service.


Join Rabbi Karen and Rabbi Micah Citrin for a new weekly Talmud study class. Bring your lunch and learn from Talmud Berachot (Blessings). more…


Let’s give thanks for our blessings together. Join us as we welcome our neighbors. This year our worship service will begin with a service project of assembling hygiene kits for people in countries that have survived natural disasters. Each community of faith will provide a different item for the kit. Please donate wide toothed combs either to the bin set up near the sanctuary or on the evening of the 19th. We need approximately 75 combs.
