Temple Beth-El

High Holidays

The High Holidays bring our synagogue community together, as our clergy lead and inspire us in prayer and music. We hold services and programs for all ages, and the upcoming schedule of offerings is available on our calendar.

Support our holy community through a donation to our annual campaign, also known as the Eternal Light Initiative (ELI) here.
