Temple Beth El is a small Reform congregation led by Rabbi Michael Sternfield and Cantor Deborah Bard. Our congregation is made up of dedicated members but with limited resources. Yet, we serve the entire community and never turn anyone away. We depend greatly upon the generosity of those who attend our High Holy Days services to keep our doors open all year round.

You may mail your check to the Temple or you may contribute online at www.templebethelbradenton.com. Follow the online instructions.
Your financial support will make a great difference and is much appreciated.

May you and your dear ones be inscribed for a year of blessings, good health, and happiness.
