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 welcomes Rabbi Jonathan Klein to be interim spiritual leader for May and June. We have offered him a contract for the 2020-2021 fiscal year and will be voting on this at our congregational meeting on June 14. Rabbi Klein has been attending our weekly Shabbat evening services for a few weeks now and started leading them on May 1. If you have not been invited to our Zoom services and would like to attend, please call the office and leave us a message with your name and email address. Hopefully, we will be able to get back to having services in person very soon.
