We want to build a community based on inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, Jew-by-choice, or Jew-by-birth. When Temple Beth El was founded in 1946, its members dedicated themselves to the creation of a home for living Judaism – a place where newcomers feel welcome, where Jewish ideals are made real, and where education is the key that unlocks the door to a lifetime of Jewish fulfillment and commitment. We are proud of this tradition and hope that your association with us will be spiritually and emotionally satisfying.
Temple Beth El’s Rabbi search committee is pleased to announce that after interviewing five potential spiritual leaders, we have narrowed our options to two. Rabbi Jonathon Klein will be coming to TBE for the weekend of March 20-22. He will be leading our Friday night service and conducting Torah study on Saturday morning. On Sunday he will be meeting with our religious school teachers and students. Two weeks later, April 3-5, we will be welcoming Rabbi Michael Cohen for a similar weekend.
We would like to have a great turn-out for both weekends so plan on being to as many events as you can make. If you know a currently unaffiliated Jew who might be interested in joining TBE, bring the along.
