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.

Brotherhood brunchMembership is open to males 18 years of age or older. Annual dues are your choice of either $36 or $54. For information on joining the Brotherhood, please email us at [email protected] or download a membership application.

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.

Did You Know...?

MAJYK 2017 is coming to Beth El?  

The Mid-Atlantic Jr. Youth Kallah will be hosted by Beth El on December 15-17 to experience a taste of NFTY and learn about its traditions and lingo.  In order to make this a success we need to find host families for 150-200 middle schoolers.  Please contact our Youth Advisors, Nori and Marissa, to become a host family!

 

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!
