Temple Beth El, “House of God”, is a Reform synagogue. While Reform in orientation, the Temple practices liberal Judaism within an atmosphere that is warm and traditional. The Temple, which is affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, strives to be a center for religious observance, for Hebrew and cultural education, and for family and social life.
Temple Beth Elohim is open year round to its congregants and many visitors. Celebration of each of the holidays on the Jewish calendar enables the congregation to experience and become part of the history and traditions of Judaism, to share these with friends and neighbors, and to strengthen Jewish identity. For members drawn to activity and service there are ample opportunities for doing mitzvot for the Temple and our community through our Sisterhood and Men’s Club.
