Welcome to Bet Chaverim 

We started off as "Community Synagogue Of South King County, CSSKC.
During a Sunday school session, a more traditional name was nominated.

Since our founding in 1989, Bet Chaverim has been an inclusive community, welcoming a diverse membership.

We are made up of a range of ages, singles, married couples, and families.  We are proud of our interfaith couples.

Although members generally live in South King and North Pierce Counties, others come from further away,

drawn by the quality of the services, the education we provide for children and adults, as well as the numerous social and cultural activities.

Our goal is to continue to build a Jewish community based on inclusiveness, and reflecting the congregation's belief in cooperation and mutual support.

We welcome and invite you.
