Beit Daniel has been welcomed as a beacon of modern Judaism in Tel Aviv, since opening its doors in 1991. Progressive Judaism in Israel, which is linked to the Reform and Liberal movements in other countries, has developed its own singular character. This is particularly evident at Beit Daniel, where visitors find familiar liturgy with an additional dimension which is best described as "Israeli." As the only Reform congregation in the largest Jewish metropolis in Israel, Beit Daniel is becoming a spiritual oasis for the so-called secular Tel Avivians who are seeking religious content in their lives. Beit Daniel offers a range of programs, from a high-quality pre-school to social programs for retirees. In between, it offers joyous worship services, bar and bat mitzvah ceremonies, and lessons and public forums for the discussion of Jewish values. Beit Daniel also offers special programs for new immigrants from the former Soviet Union and for women who may be shut out of religious leadership elsewhere. Beit Daniel members are very active in outreach to the Tel Aviv community at large and to needy individuals and groups in particular.
