Welcome to Temple Beth El

Shabbat services are every Friday night at 7:00 pm; Saturday morning at 11 am, followed by Torah Study.

While we are closed during this time of the CO-VID 19 pandemic, Rabbi Michael Sternfield and Cantor Deborah Bard will provide a Friday night service on a YouTube video and a Saturday morning Torah study via Zoom, which will be provided each week. Check back here to access the links to Shabbat services.

Shabbat morning Torah study begins every Saturday morning at 11:00 a.m. with Rabbi Sternfield and Cantor Bard. We meet via Zoom. If you would like to participate, just send your email to Rabbi Sternfield. You will then receive notifications and instructions on how to connect about 10 minutes before the zoom session is to begin. Rabbi Sternfield will also send out the study materials in advance. Each week we study the Torah portion for the week.
