Kadima: What I Like About Beth El

Categories: 100 Reasons, Community Voices
 

Ty:  One of my favorite things about Beth El is getting to go to services and being welcome.

Sophia:  One of my favorite things that I’ve gotten to do at Beth El for the past couple of years is I got to participate in Steam Team, which is helping Martin out with his Bar Mitzvah and I got to meet Martin. I got to bond with him more. And I got to bond with other classmates, and it’s been just a really great overall experience.

Danny: I really like that Beth El put an X Box in the youth lounge so that everyone can have fun and play together.  Thank you, Rabbi Alex!

Ella: What I like about Beth El is that when I was new and in 5th grade everyone was really nice to me.

Ava: My favorite part about Beth El is how nice everyone is and how open everyone is. At Beth El I can really be myself, and everyone thinks that’s awesome.
