About us

Chai @ Beth El is a spiritual home for young adults in San Diego. We seek to help young adults create meaningful connections and establish a sense of belonging in a Jewish community while participating in dynamic programming that launches personal, mental, spiritual, and emotional growth. Chai works to partner with other organizations to build community relationships, ensure seamless transitions between various life stages for our participants, and inspire young adults to lead fulfilling Jewish lives.


Hello and welcome to Chai 20s and 30s at Beth El. I'm David Lipsitz, the Chai coordinator and Ba'al Tefillah at CBE. My goal is to build a vibrant and meaningful cohort of young professionals within the greater congregational community. Stop by one of our events or shoot me an email to get connected.
