Unless otherwise noted, Shabbat services start at 7:30pm every Friday night, and at 10:00am every Saturday morning.



Torah Study

Weekday Torah Study takes place every Thursday in our Social Hall from 10:30am to 12:30pm. That group started reading at the beginning of the Torah on Thursday, October 8, and will pick up each week where they previously left off until they finish reading the Torah.


Pirke Avoteinu
“Pirke Avoteinu” – ‘The Wisdom of Our Elders’ – is our series featuring our community’s elders and ages speaking on selected Friday nights. Please join us on Friday night, May 27th, when Corinne Garland will be our speaker.


High School Senior Shabbat
Please join us on Friday night, June 10, when our High School Seniors will be honored at Shabbat services, with a blessing and other treats.


TBE’s celebration of Shavuot will start at 7pm on Saturday night, June 11. The celebration of our ancestors receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai will include the unrolling of the entire scroll and then a tour of the Torah, one or text study sessions, and a special Oneg (dairy is the traditional food of Shavuot). We ask that everyone coming please bring a dairy snack to share – traditional Shavuot foods include cheesecake, blintzes, and ice cream.

Temple Beth El is proud to announce that our third Confirmation service will take place on Friday night, June 17, starting at 7:30pm. Tenth graders Jackie Lerman, Ally Motter, and Ross Wunibald will lead the service together, and each will share special thoughts marking the conclusion of their formal synagogue religious school years. Please join us for this very special service.

To encourage you to give your home a clean start, I hope you will find time to look high and low in your house to find items that you can donate to the Temple Beth El Yard Sale.
The funds raised went to support multiple temple activities.  This is a great way to raise money from the greater Williamsburg community.  Any items left over will be donated to another local charity serving those in need.
There is no way to predict what items people are looking to buy but popular items include: decorator items, costume jewelry, fashion accessories, books, toys & games, puzzles, kitchen items, small furniture, tools.  Clothes are o.k.  All donations will be welcomed.
If you have any questions or would like to help, please call Jill Whitten 258-0182
