Best wishes from all of us to you and your wonderful family.

Happy Chanukah and may these eight days be as special as you wish them to be.

PPlease join us as we add one light each night to Temple Beth-El’s beautiful outdoor Chanukiyah. We will be lighting the candles every night at 6:00 p.m. (following our evening minyan service). Please note, however, that on Friday evening, December 15th, we will do the candle lighting at 6:45 p.m. just prior to our Shabbat evening service. 

Chag Chanukah Sameach!

Today, we are so thrilled to be sending our weekly email from the Union for Reform Judaism Biennial in Boston, where 5500 Jews from North America and Israel have gathered to learn, pray and celebrate together. 
The past two days have been both joyful and inspiring.The Reverend William Barbour gave a rousing sermon, citing our prophets and exhorting us to be part of “a moral breakthrough” on behalf of the poor. The acclaimed Israeli author, David Grossman, urged us to raise our voices for pluralism and justice in Israel. Our education team, Sarah, Joie, and Rachel, made a terrific presentation on teen engagement, and Executive Director, Judy Moseley gave an informative talk on Temple security.  And of course, we have reconnected with old friends and made new ones in the shared experience of our religious community.
Tonight, more than fifty members of TBE will be here for Shabbat dinner, services, and the largest, most enthusiastic Jewish song session in the world. We’ll be clapping and dancing and raising our arms and voices in joy. These are days we will not soon forget.
Shabbat shalom,
Rabbi Howard, Rabbi Sarah, Judy M, Joie and Rachel
