Beth Israel Synagogue (Hebrew: בית ישראל‎) is a Conservative synagogue located at 920 Franklin Road in Roanoke, Virginia. It was founded in 1900, and as of 2009 had a membership of approximately 160 families and individuals.[1]

In 2007 the synagogue completed an expansion and renovation of its building, carefully planned so that the original facade, part of Roanoke's Old Southwest historic district, was unaltered.[2] Fabian Werbin joined as rabbi in 2008.[1]
