You are here

Beth El has joined a growing temple movement throughout North America focusing on people over the age of 50 who are also "empty nesters" or "nearly empty nesters"—whether married or single, employed or retired.

The Renaissance Group focuses on social activities designed for individuals with an active lifestyle. While the cost of events will be shared by those participating, we will ask those wishing to affiliate with the Beth El Renaissance Group to pay a one-time $10 per person membership fee. This provides "seed money" for events.

Beth El members who affiliate with the group are invited to suggest and help coordinate the events.

Membership in the Renaissance Group is limited to Beth El members. However, guests or partners of single members are always welcome.

If you have any questions, comments, or ideas, please call or email Linda or Larry Vogel (703) 242-1880 or any other member of the Renaissance Group Steering Committee. (below:  Renaissance Group members at Montpelier, 2010)

Did You Know...?

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.
