Beth El envisions and strives to be a vibrant center for Jewish prayer and spiritual life, accepting a wide range of Jewish practices and traditions within a community that is hospitable, friendly, spirited, generous, and joyful. We envision a synagogue that includes not only prayer life, but in addition, gives the community a variety of opportunities to learn and be together through study and discussion groups, classes and workshops, Jewish holiday celebrations, fundraisers, speakers and musical events, as well as continuing to foster good relationships with the interfaith community. We wish to be a community filled with ruach and Jewish spirit, always moving in the direction of being most welcoming with friendship, inclusivity, creativity, and cordiality.
