Welcome

Temple Beth El is the only synagogue in the Historic Triangle. We are an unaffiliated congregation, with members from a wide variety of Jewish backgrounds. We use the prayerbook published by the Reconstructionist movement, and our Rabbi, David Katz, is a graduate of the Reconstructionist movement’s seminary.

Shabbat services are usually held every Friday night at 7:30pm, and every Saturday morning at 10am. Once each month, our family-friendly service, Shabbat Kulanu/Shabbat For All Of Us – starts at 6:30pm. Please check our calendar for information about this week’s services and other events.


UPCOMING EVENTS:

    On Friday night, October 13th, at the special starting time of 7:00 PM we will be celebrating both Simchat Torah and Consecration for our new TBE School students.  Come dance with the Torahs!  Please bring wrapped candy and a dessert to share for the Oneg.
  • SHABBAT KULANU
    Shabbat Kulanu/Shabbat For All Of Us is our family-oriented service. Usually taking place on the third Friday night of each month, the service starts at 6:30pm. and features guitar-playing, dancing, a puppet show, and pizza afterwards. Shabbat Kulanu is ideally for children eight and under, although many adults report it’s their favorite service, too!
