Services

At Beth El, the atmosphere at Friday evening and Saturday morning Shabbat services is warm, casual, and friendly. We take seriously our mission to be an inclusive shul and strive to accommodate all who wish to participate in services.

We are a family congregation, where young and old pray together.  Members of the congregation lead the davening, read from the Torah, and chant haftarot. Often those taking leadership roles are teenagers who have learned the necessary skills through the Spiegel Religious School and Beth El’s B’nai Mitzvah program.

Rabbi Alex Greenbaum is our spiritual leader. His unique mix of humor and wisdom sets the tone for all of our services. He invites participation during his sermons, supports and celebrates every family during important life cycle events, and always ends services on time.

Please join us!

“Not a man of words”: Almost Ready

Martin’s Bar Mitzvah day is almost here. After months of weekly practice sessions and years of planning and going back to the drawing board and planning some more, we are just about ready to achieve a goal we once thought we wouldn’t even try to achieve.  It’s hard now to remember the days when Martin…

Accessibility at Beth El 2016

Funny how there are issues which you think are someone else’s problem. Until one day it becomes yours as well. I’ve been aware of some of some of the accessibility problems in our building.  A few months ago, I even recommended an accessibility expert, who came out to do an assessment of our facility.  But…
