Welcome to Temple Beth Emeth!

Welcome to Temple Beth Emeth and our website. We invite you to become a part of our active and activist congregation. Our community is built on its cooperative spirit where everyone contributes their fair share. No one is ever denied membership based on their ability to pay. We value diversity, and we welcome all who are interested in practicing and learning about Judaism, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or abilities. Our congregation includes many interfaith families and Jews-by-choice. Temple Beth Emeth's goal is to provide for the religious, educational, social, and social justice aspirations of all members.

Yom Kippur Preparation Discussion Group
Monday, September 14 | 7 pm | TBE Chapel
Tuesday, September 15 | 12:30 pm | TBE Chapel  

In preparation for Yom Kippur, everyone is invited to join a discussion of The Book of Jonah. Through Jonah we delve deeply into issues of faith, forgiveness, repentance, and divine purpose. The Rabbis through the ages considered the Book of Jonah to be of such great spiritual importance that they chose to read it aloud in the synagogue on Yom Kippur afternoon. Two identical study and discussion sessions on September 14 and 15 will be offered. The discussions will explore the origins and the meaning of the Jonah story and other modern moral dilemmas. For more information, contact Richard Greene, richardgreene2@aol.com.

Call for Break the Fast Donations and Volunteers
TBE Sisterhood needs donations of homemade kugels and coffee cakes to make our evening special as well as women to work during the afternoon with Emily Wachsberger as she coordinates the food that day. Please contact Bobbi Heilveil at 994-4261 or bobbiheilveil@gmail.com if you can bake or help to set up.
