Vision Statement

Temple Beth-El, a reform congregation, is an engaging destination for connection, comfort, joy and spirituality. We are a home where all are encouraged to explore their knowledge, faith and activism within a safe atmosphere to find their place in Judaism.

Mission Statement

Working toward “living” this vision, Temple Beth-El’s services, programs and resources will strive to:

  •  Find ways to continue to build an inclusive community among our membership. This includes the entire spectrum of our Jewish community: people of all ages, races, abilities, interfaith families, people who are single, partnered and the LGBTQ community. All who wish to explore their identity to Judaism are welcome.
  • Expand engagement among our membership as a progressive reform congregation through contemporary and innovative education for our students and through faith-based and life-based programming for our adults.
  • Build upon our commitment to Tikkun Olam (repair the world) and G’milut Chasdim (deeds of lovingkindness) and the celebration of life as a community through Avodah (in our worship) and Torah (in our study).
  •  Provide support and solidarity for Israel through various programming and educational opportunities thereby giving our adults and youth the freedom and comfort to connect to Israel in a personal meaningful ways.

With clergy focused on its members’ needs, Temple Beth-El is the ideal place to express and explore your Jewish faith; a home to make meaningful connections to both our local and global Jewish community, to come together to lift up the human spirit, engage in life-long learning and participate in community service.
