Congregation Beth Israel, the oldest synagogue in Southern California, kicked off a yearlong commemoration of its 150th anniversary with an opening party on Sept. 18 at the temple in La Jolla. The event also launched an endowment campaign to protect the congregation’s financial security for the next 150 years and beyond. Mary Ann Scher is chairing the anniversary events.

Congregation Beth Israel includes 1,200 households throughout San Diego County and maintains an affiliation with the Union for Reform Judaism. Its award-winning campus at 9001 Towne Centre Drive, is the third building it has occupied during its 150 years. More at bethisrael150.org and cbisd.org
