About Beth El

Beth El Family SanctuaryWelcome to Beth El Congregation, a Conservative synagogue located in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Beth El Congregation is a Conservative, egalitarian synagogue. As a bet tefilla, a house of prayer, a bet midrash, a house of study, and a bet knesset, a house of assembly, it strives to meet the individual and communal religious, educational and social needs of the Beth El family.

We have weekday morning and evening minyans in addition to Shabbat and holiday services.

All services are participatory. We invite you to come and experience a Shabbat with us any Saturday morning at 9:15 (babysitting is available).
