This week’s 100 Reasons post features Beth El members Stacey and Jason Cobb:
Stacey: I grew up going to Beth El but moved away for college and met Jason. We belonged to a synagogue in Columbus, OH prior to moving back here.
Jason: The rabbi I took my conversion classes with went to rabbinical school with Rabbi Alex.
Stacey: It worked out well. We moved back here, we were married by Rabbi Alex and joined Beth El and have been here ever since.
Jason: The thing I like best about Beth El is how inclusive the community is here. You never have to feel different, even if you weren’t raised Jewish.
Stacey: Our kids really enjoy coming and ask us to bring them all the time. Ga Ga is a big draw!
