Welcome! Our new website is under construction.

Congregation Beit Simchat Torah (CBST) is a vibrant spiritual community and a progressive voice within Judaism.  Founded in 1973, CBST attracts and welcomes gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender, queer and straight individuals and families who share common values.  Passionate, provocative, and deeply Jewish, CBST champions a Judaism that rejoices in diversity, denounces social injustice wherever it exists, and strives for human rights for all people.
