Welcome back to a new program year at Beth El Temple Center. The Adult Learning Committee has been busy organizing programs to enlighten, educate, and entertain you. These include "Torah as a Spiritual Practice" with Rabbi Kraus, a regular series of Table Talk dinners, and "Zamir: Jewish Voices Return to Poland" with Cantor Treitman.
The Social Action Committee at BETC spearheads our efforts of "Tikkun Olam", repairing the world. There are always many opportunities to volunteer, participate, and serve. Three different programs this year will help to feed those in need in our community and those who surround us.
Building a sukkah on Sukkot is not just a mitzvah- it is a ritual that gets us outdoors, connects us to nature, and for some of us, pushes us to explore construction skills we never knew we had. This year, several of our members sent in pictures of their handwork to be displayed here.
