Be’erot Community was established in 2010 by a small group of American immigrants together with local Be’er Shevians with the vision of establishing a pluralistic, egalitarian Jewish community in the Negev. Be’erotvalues social involvement and contributes in many ways to the Be’er Sheva community. The community centers around a synagogue led by won and balances between tradition and innovation in their davening, learning, and social action projects throughout the region.

Community Projects:

  • Egalitarian Minyan. The unique minyan flourishes and invites those who are interested in urban-community life, with a pluralist, feminist, cooperative nature. The community celebrates the Jewish holidays together, organizes cultural events, learning and activities for children.
