Beth El Hebrew Brotherhood logoThe Brotherhood of Beth El Hebrew Congregation was founded to unite the men of the Congregation for all purposes conducive to the well-being and progress of both Beth El Hebrew Congregation and the cause of Reform Judaism. Our mission is to create a sense of community among the members of the Brotherhood, their families, and the Congregation.

Men of Reform Judaism (MRJ) was founded in 1923 as the National Federation of Temple Brotherhoods (NFTB). It officially changed its name in May 2007 to the Men of Reform Judaism to serve Jewish men, Reform Judaism and its local congregations. MRJ is affiliated with URJ.

Beth El is raising funds for a new playground?

With seed money from Cantor Jason Kaufman's concert, the JCCNV was able to start a fund with all proceeds going towards a new playground for the preschool.  If you would like to donate towards this very worthy project, simply send your donations to Beth El Hebrew Congregation and notate "Playground."  If you donate on line, the playground fund is first on the list!

United We Stand

 

Beth El Hebrew Congregation stands with the residents of Charlottesville in denouncing hatred. The truly shameful behavior of neo Nazi groups that descended upon the city was the latest example of domestic terrorism designed to further divide our nation. We believe that all people regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation are an asset to the social fabric of the United States. Any attempt by hate groups to deny the rights of citizens will always fail because our fundamental beliefs in liberty and equality. Our prayers go out to the families of Heather Heyer,  Lt. H. Jay Cullen, and Berke M.M. Bates, along with all the counter protesters who were hurt.
