Message from the Rabbi

Thank you for expressing interest in our community. I know you will find Temple Beth-El above all, a caring Jewish community that extends its concern to all its members.

Committed to the dynamic spirit of Reform Judaism, Temple Beth-El has remained faithful to our roots and our tradition. We provide extensive educational opportunities for young and old, enabling our members to make informed choices in shaping their own Jewish expression and observance.

Conscious of our obligation to tikkun olam (repairing the world), our social justice initiatives range from involvement in world affairs to housing the area’s homeless and stocking the community food bank. We are also active in outreach to interfaith households, working to assure that all who join our temple community feel a complete sense of belonging.

Temple Beth-El is blessed to have a dedicated lay leadership to work closely with our clergy, but the heart of our congregation is our members. Our strength is in the number of our early members who continue to serve active leadership roles alongside our newer members.

I invite you to share in our joyful experience of Reform Judaism and to seek your personal spiritual expression with our congregation. I would be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about your Jewish journey.

L’Shalom,

Rabbi Arnold Gluck
