The Tip of the Mitt's only Synagogue in Northern Michigan

Temple B'nai Israel is located at 505 Michigan in Petoskey, MI, a year round resort community nestled on the shores of Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay.  The town is known for cool, comfortable lake breezes in the summer and countless activities to satisfy visitors throughout the year.  Whether you are coming to have fun on the bay in the summer, hike the great outdoors, indulge in regional cultural offerings, enjoy the great colors of fall, or bask in our million dollar sunsets, Petoskey is a great place to visit.

Our services are offered in a relaxed atmosphere that features warm and friendly congregants with diverse backgrounds.  The Sanctuary and Social Hall are tastefully appointed, modern and recently remodeled to reflect our resort community.  Our congregation offers a unique combination of small, community living with sophisticated, upscale living.

Come and see what Petoskey and Temple B'nai Israel have to offer.  Services are open to the public, and all are welcome.  If you are interested in attending, please see the worship calendar here.  If you have other questions, please feel free to call Carol Ellstein, Temple President, at 231-525-9250 or email
