In Judaism, charity is not merely an act of giving; it is a moral commitment of faith. Although many people believe that the Hebrew word tzedakah means charity, the word's roots convey much more—a combination of righteousness, fairness and justice. The Rabbis of old taught that the construction of the Temple was not completed until everyone had contributed to the effort. As a result, the Synagogue, the place where our people and God meet, is dependent upon the good will and donations of each and every one of us.

Today, each gift to Beth El Hebrew Congregation reflects that tradition. Your support makes possible inspiring worship services led by outstanding clergy; stimulating educational opportunities for tots, children, teens and adults; Jewish cultural programming; connection and caring for our congregational community; fulfillment of our commitment to tikkun olam (repairing the world and the Jewish community worldwide); and maintenance and preservation of our sanctuary building.

In addition to giving financially to Beth El, we welcome you to give as a volunteer. Click here for more information on volunteer opportunities in our community.

Make your end of year Mitzvah Gift to the Supplemental Giving Program

Your generous gift to supplemental giving provides critical funding for our programs. The 2018 end of year goal is $30,000. Every dollar we raise above that amount will go toward the installation of a wheelchair ramp to make our Bima accessible to every member of Beth El. Thanks for your support!

As the frustrating government shutdown drags on, we extend our sympathies during this anxious time for you and your family. While Beth El Hebrew Congregation is not a direct service provider, we can offer temporary dues relief until the shutdown has ended. We hope this resource list can be an asset during this difficult time and pray for an immediate resolution:
