Beth El feels like home.

At Beth El, we believe we are better together. That is why:

We make it possible. Beth El’s dues are affordable! Membership fees are considerably
less than most area synagogues’…and no one is turned away for lack of funds.

We make it personal. Our clergy team, Rav Benjamin Goldberg and Cantor
Sharon Citrin-Goldstein, are as committed to our members as they are to rich and
meaningful ritual observance. Our GEMACH caring committee reaches out to the ill and
homebound. And social action is an important element of all Beth El activities.

We make it inspiring. Beth El’s services are informal and inspiring. Questions and
discussion are welcome and music and singing inspire participation. Interfaith family
members are warmly welcomed at all Beth El services and events. Our siddur features
Hebrew, transliterations, translations, and inspiring and educational notes so everyone
can participate in our services.

We make it social. Cultural events, such as artist talks, concerts and comedy, game
and movie nights provide many opportunities for socializing. Sisterhood and Men’s Club
create wonderful opportunities for socializing while supporting Beth El.

We make it delicious. Delicious monthly Shabbat dinners and dessert-laden social
events are highlights of our congregational activities.

In looking for a way to further my
personal commitment to Judaism I
searched for a congregation that
would provide both an intimate and
spiritual resource.  Having attended
an “open house” as well as a Rosh
Hashanah service, I was convinced
this was my new “home.”

Beth El has been a wonderful
experience for me and my family.
Members are warm and inviting, and
my children have a chance to connect
with a larger Jewish community.

I was pleasantly surprised at how
comfortable I felt at Beth El’s
Conservative service. Growing up in a
Conservative synagogue as a child, I
had always felt disconnected. Beth El
provides a very comforting service
where I understand what is
happening. Also, I was happy to meet
and connect with families with
children the same age as mine. I’m
sure these will be lasting relationships.
