Who We Are

We are a diverse, family-friendly community embracing people of all ages and backgrounds, Jews and their non-Jewish partners, and people of all of sexual orientations, genders and sexual identities.

Singles, couples and families with all backgrounds find a home at Beth El. Our goal is to help everyone feel comfortable in our synagogue, whether attending a worship service, supporting children in their religious education, socializing or playing on our softball team.
 
Our clergy recognizes that people are not "one size fits all" and work to help all our members on their personal journeys, and encourage active participation in all facets of synagogue life.

The Beth El Mission

Our mission and vision come from nearly a year of conversations with members of our congregation, our board of trustees and our professional staff:

In everything we do, we work to create and sustain a vibrant, informed and engaged synagogue community – today and tomorrow. Our goal is to build community and deepen personal engagement through learning, caring and spirit.
