A house of friends. A community open to all.

Jewish life thrives in Yolo County! Our House of Friends includes 275 member households, celebrating the full breadth of the Jewish life cycle.

Welcome to Congregation Bet Haverim!

For more than fifty years we have been the center of Jewish life in the university town of Davis, California and the surrounding Yolo County area. We are a Reform temple (and a member of the Union of Reform Judaism) and provide our partners and interested members of the community with all the spiritual, educational, and life expanding activities that would be expected at a full service synagogue. Bet Haverim operates a highly respected non-denominational pre-school, Gan Haverim (“Garden of Friends”), and makes our campus and facilities available for rent to our community for worthwhile activities and events.

If you are seeking an open, generous, and welcoming Jewish community no matter your family situation, personal preferences, religious background or knowledge of Judaism, please come by to meet us and ask questions.

Feel free to participate. Everyone is welcome!
