Growing & Fostering Our Jewish World

Our Temple Beth-El Congregation worships God in the Reform Jewish tradition.  We are both diverse and multi-generational, welcoming any person or family wishing to associate themselves with our Jewish community. We strive to cultivate a love of our Jewish cultural heritage and actively support the State of Israel. The spirit of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and a vibrant spirituality are ingrained within our Congregation.  Our many educational programs reach deep into the community, embracing all ages, faiths, races and ethnic backgrounds.

NOTE: The celebration previously scheduled in May to honor Rabbi and Malka Altman as they retire has been postponed at their request. More information will be provided as we have it so please watch this site and watch your bulletins for additional information.
