What have we got for kids?
Our Religious school is the finest learning experience in an atmosphere that is warm, caring, nurturing and … fun. For the youngest children, we provide a monthly Torah and Tots program. Every Sunday and Wednesday we offer programs designed to let children learn through experience, appreciate their faith and history and gain a sense of connection to Judaism. When its time to prepare for a Bat or Bar mitzvah, our children shine, working one-on-one with the Rabbi and tutor to make it a meaningful and beautiful experience for the entire family.
Our post-B’nei mitzvah program for middle and high school students provides opportunities to study with the Rabbi, be a student teacher, take trips to New York City, Washington and Ottawa and join NFTY, the National Federation of Temple Youth.
What have we got for adults?
At Shaarei-Beth El there is an abundance of educational and social opportunities.
Our Adult Education program caters to the life-long learner in you, with Sunday morning and weekday evening courses from Hebrew, to History to Israel to Torah Study.
Social programming includes a “Pizza in the Hut” on Sukkoth, a Hanukkah lunch and Purim carnival and feast.
We have get-togethers, town hall meetings and even musical performances to round out our calendar. Social action projects include donations to the Food Bank on the High Holydays, walks for Charity such as Cancer or MS research, and an annual Mitzvah Day, and other opportunities to come together to do good for others while strengthening camaraderie among our members.
Worship With Us
Every Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. we gather together for services along with our professionally directed volunteer choir to celebrate Shabbat and the special moments in our members’ lives.
We also have a monthly Kabbalat Shabbat service and dinner at 6pm on the first Friday of most months.
High Holidays every fall are always special occasions with our Rabbi and Cantor leading us in awe-inspriring services.
