Don’t miss the opportunity to join us for summer services at Beth El in July and August! Our brief, Friday night service starts at 6:00 p.m. and is held outdoors on the terrace if the weather permits. Many congregants use the opportunity to meet for this relaxed, half-hour service and then share Friday night dinner together. The early, short service, especially when held outdoors, also has been a good fit for many of our families with younger children.
Join us for Shabbat services on Friday night, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. as Arlene Feinberg becomes the sixteenth recipient of the Stanley and Eleanor Trebach Award. This award, created in loving memory of Stanley & Eleanor (z”l), honors Temple members who, like the Trebachs, have provided “longstanding, faithful, and unassuming service” to the Beth El Temple Center community.
