Welcome To Temple Beth El!
If you aren’t regularly in the building you might be surprised how busy it is, even in a month with no Jewish holidays. Friday kicked off the weekend with the 2024 B’nei Mitzvah cohort participating in a special Kabalat Shabbat service, led by Michael Miller. A Shabbat dinner of Israeli comfort food followed, with a discussion of the Israel-Hamas war.
Each student has been assigned a new tutor and all are on track with their B’nei Mitzvah preparations.
In addition to normal Saturday services, a community Havdalah service was held at Temple Beth El, led by Sam Asher. It was a joint effort between TBE, the Jewish Community Center, and the Federation to promote unity and prayer for hostages.
The 20/30s group held their “Spooky, Spiritual, Havdalah” upstairs on Saturday as well. They got together to make Havdalah candles and learn about Jewish mysticism with Rabbinic student Josh Klein via Zoom from Israel.
