Your Jewish Home Away from Home
Beth El Congregation is like extended family in the Shenandoah Valley.
We celebrate holidays and happy occasions together. And we support each other during difficult times.
Most of the year, we are a small, informal group, dressing casually, speaking casually, laughing often – and caring passionately.
Join us as we enter a new era. After two wonderful years with Rabbi Peter Grumbacher as our interim part-time rabbi, we say a sad goodbye to him at the end of June 2018. During his two years with us, we grew in so many ways and enjoyed his unique sense of humor, thoughtful and inspiring sermons, sold-out second Seders, memorable b’nai mitzvah, and much more.
In July, we welcomed back Rabbi Scott Sperling. More about what we have planned coming soon. But save some key dates:
- Our “Welcome Back, Rabbi Sperling Service” will be Friday, August 24.
- Our Open House for prospective temple members and those interested in learning more about our religious school is scheduled for Friday, September 7.
For the High Holy Days 2018, we are pleased to welcome back to our pulpit Rabbi Scott Sperling and Cantor Karen Webber. Cantor Webber will once again offer her own deeply spiritual approach to the High Holy Day melodies and Rabbi Sperling will focus on helping us deepen our own spiritual journey with prayers and thought-provoking sermons.
Please come. Visit. Ask questions. We want you to feel free to participate at whatever level is comfortable for you.
