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.

 

Giving opportunities

Contributions in all amounts help support a wide variety of projects and programs at Beth El Hebrew Congregation. Gifts are a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, the arrival of a child—or to honor the life of someone who has passed away.

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!
