Mission and News

Congregation Beth El is a Conservative synagogue whose mission is to create a home for every soul by offering a variety of Jewish experiences to nourish the mind, heart, and spirit, while being a caring Jewish community.

Thank you to all congregants who attended the Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, April 14, 2016. We appreciated your participation and input at the meeting, as well the questions you shared prior to it. As discussed, a congregation-wide email was sent the week of 4/25/16 with the meeting's highlights and next steps for the Shared Commitment Membership Model and Senior Rabbi - Transition & Search and Search Committee & Process, along with an opportunity to share further feedback.

Please continue to send comments for the Shared Commitment Membership Model and Senior Rabbi Search to Laurie Greenberg, President at president@cbe.org and Senior Rabbi Search to Alan Viterbi and Nancy Dosick, Rabbinic Search Committee Chairs at rabbisearch@cbe.org.

Also join us for the recently announced, Rabbinic Search Meetings, where congregants will have the opportunity to provide feedback, ask questions, and express concerns to the chairs of the Rabbinic Search Committee.

Thank you to the 100+ congregants who participated in the online survey about Zmanim, our quarterly magazine. We appreciated your thoughtful and candid feedback. We are reviewing and exploring implementing some of the excellent suggestions to further enhance the magazine's informative, inspiring content and quality, professional design. Look for the Zmanim Summer 2016 issue in mid-June!

Read and enjoy Our Shared Commitment, Congregation Beth El, 2015-16/5776 booklet. It highlights our values, what we have accomplished together, and some of our goals for the new year ahead. 

 

The Zmanim Spring 2016 issue celebrates what’s best about Beth El, “Reaching Out and Stepping Up". The issue was mailed to congregants the week of 3/14/16 so we hope you are enjoying it. You can also read it cover to cover here!

We also wanted to share an interactive version of one of the issue's feature stories "What It Means to Be a 21st Century". A conversation Beth El’s Strategic Planning Committee Chair, Tad Parzen had with Rabbi Graubart.
