Beth El Temple Center is a Reform congregation of over 350 memberships, affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism. Beth El Temple Center is located in Belmont, Massachusetts and serves many surrounding communities, including Cambridge, Watertown, Waltham, Lexington, Arlington and Somerville. Beth El has a strong egalitarian tradition and welcomes Jews and their families who want to be a part of our Jewish community. Beth El Temple Center offers a place for learning and living Torah, a place to help repair the world, and a place to nurture your soul.
In early October, our community will gather once again for the beautiful, thought-provoking, and inspiring observance of the Days of Awe (sometimes called, the "High Holy Days"). As always, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur provide us with wonderful opportunities for self-reflection and for powerful moments of both personal and communal renewal.
Nominations are now open for the first annual Jonathan Jacoby Tikkun Olam Awards. These awards were created by the Social Action Committee to honor long-time Temple member, Jonathan Jacoby, who set an example for us all by his dedication to the work of tikkun olam, "repairing the world." One adult and one youth member will be selected for the award each year.
