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.
