The Home of Temple B’nai Israel

Welcome to Temple B’nai Israel, the Satell Center for Jewish Life on the Eastern Shore. Visit to meet us and enjoy our activities. We have occupied our new home since June, 2018, and it has more than fulfilled our expectations. It is so much more than a space for religious services. Our Temple is home to a variety of activities, including religious school and adult education, special lectures with guest speakers, a book club, a variety of social activities, films, music, and a meeting place for community activities. We welcome interfaith couples and support an active, visible presence on the Mid-Shore.

Rabbi Peter Hyman has been with the congregation since 2008, our first full time Rabbi. He has had a major impact in making B’nai Israel a central part of the inter-faith community.

We look forward to greeting you with the warm welcome of an intimate, friendly and easily approachable congregation. Join us and share your ideas and energy and become part of our growth on the Eastern Shore.

Reflections on Observing Black History Month in the Wake of the Capitol Insurrection kbkaput February 23, 2021

This is not yet the America most of us dream of, but it is an unavoidable part of our DNA. American equality and exceptionalism are checks that are still in the mail. If we truly love what this country is capable of, we must continue to speak the hard truth to power.
