Inclusivity at Temple Beth-El

At Temple Beth-El, we treasure diversity and welcome congregants who are young, senior, single, married, Jews-by-Choice, interfaith couples and families, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, and anyone interested in learning more about Judaism.

Through programs and worship, we make every effort to insure that our community is inclusive, and all who come here feel welcome.

The clergy welcome officiating at LGBTQ+ lifecycle events, we mark transgender Day of Visibility, and celebrate Pride Month, we acknowledge Mental Health Awareness Month, and have a mental health professional as a liaison to the Temple. We additionally work in partnership with Keshet to support children with disabilities and their families.

Our inclusive environment supports:

  • Shabbat and holiday programs designed for families with special needs
  • Religious school accommodations including The Spirit Room, staffed by an occupational therapist and Jewish educator
  • Representation at the American Conference of Cantors on the Jewish Disabilities Network
  • Building accessibility for people with disabilities
