Our Stories

A synagogue is more than a building; it is a community. And at Beth El, like at any good community, our culture is defined by our stories. They are the fabric of our lives: the individual and collective threads that weave us together and bind us. Someone once said, “If you want to get to know a people, listen to their stories.”

There are so many wonderful stories at Beth El. Here are just a few. Enjoy them.
Coming from a reform Jewish background with an emphasis on ethics, my understanding of Torah and ritual has been enriched at Beth El. The fact that my grandchildren are more observant than I is a source of great comfort.
