Temple Beth-El and COVID-19

Our hearts ache to be together again, back to the lives and community we enjoy.

Pikuach Nefesh (the preservation of human life) is hands-down, the most important value in Judaism. Temple Beth-El takes this virus very seriously and has made the following adjustments in our programming. We hope you will stay connected with us each and every step of the way as we bond together as a congregation as follows:

Shabbat Services

Mincha Moments – twice weekly spiritual check-ins
And other special programs to keep you connected.

Prayers for healing

  • Terumah

    Terumah is Temple Beth-El’s Annual Voluntary Financial Commitment Program

    Terumah is the name of Temple Beth-El’s very popular approach to dues. In the Torah, terumah indicated a “free-will” offering, not a required one.
    We pride ourselves on removing barriers at Temple Beth-El as we welcome those of all backgrounds. Allowing members to set their own financial commitment opens the doors even wider to all, regardless of financial situation. Everyone may give as much as they are able and no one has to ask for reduced dues.
