Founded in 1947, our purpose is to maintain a congregation devoted to fundamental values: Worship (Avodah); Learning (Torah); and Loving Acts (Gemilut Chasadim). Our mission is to worship God in accordance with the faith of Judaism and to cultivate in our synagogue community:
an understanding of our Jewish heritage;
public and private worship;
religious education; and to do any and all things necessary or desirable for carrying out our mission.
The Temple family seeks to fulfill its religious and ethical goals by being a center for spiritual fulfillment, life-long learning, cultural enrichment, community leadership, social responsibility and by lovingly entrusting our Reform Jewish tradition to future generations, going from strength to strength.
We are committed in our support of the State of Israel and of the Jewish people throughout the world.
Temple Beth El seeks to cultivate a love and understanding of our Jewish heritage; to stimulate an awareness of our responsibilities as Jews to the community in which we live; to reach out and embrace individuals, partners, and married adults who are of the Jewish faith, or who wish to participate in the Jewish faith, regardless of their ethnic, racial, sexual and other such personal orientations; and to promote the principles of righteousness and fellowship in society at large.
