Benefits of Membership

Beth El is a Conservative Congregation affiliated with United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism. We provide a wide range of activities to meet the spiritual, educational and social needs of our members. It is a place for spiritual reflection, to acquire deeper knowledge and a place to make new friends. Our warmth and ruach (spirit) create a sharing of ideas, life cycle events, new friendships, and Havurot (groups of friends). We are a traditional, egalitarian, and innovative congregation.

Membership enriches a Jewish family with a sense of purpose and meaning. We have over  75 years of history, tradition, success, and excellence. The quality of our schools, the diversity of our membership, adult education, our leadership in the Jewish community, the professionalism of our leaders and staff, our warm congregation and our creative programs are our greatest strengths.

Some of our events have included Sukkot Under the Stars, Hanukkah celebrations,  community-wide concerts, Silent Auctions, Purim Carnival, Shabbat and Holiday Dinners, Havdalah programs, picnics, and Scholar-in-Residence Programs. In addition, we offer many adult education opportunities.

Our Social Action projects include  ongoing ICM Food Bank Donations, Mitzvah Project Days, Annual Blood Drives, adopting families for the holidays, High Holy Day & Passover Food Drives, and our “Blanket Boosters,” a group that crochets blankets for organizations that help children in crisis in our community. We also  support many community-wide Jewish events and programs throughout the year.

Friday evening services begin at 5:45pm. The Shabbat morning service begins at 9:00am. We read the Torah according the triennial cycle.  We hold daily minyan each morning and evening. The High Holy Day services are held on our campus and include the main service, a Preschool service, and a Family Service. Childcare is offered at no cost to members on the High Holy Days.

Beth El has a variety volunteer opportunities on our board, committees, Women’s League, Kiddush Crew, and Front Desk Volunteers. We welcome prospective members to visit our campus. Our professional staff and volunteers will be happy to answer any of your questions.
