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.
Our mission reflects the Talmudic wisdom that we are “Shutafim b’ma’aseh bereshit,” partners in creation. That means our congregation is committed to being a partner in creating a world of shalom: peace, harmony, and balance. We do this through Jewish worship, study and acts of kindness. We support local and worldwide efforts to promote social justice.
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.
