Thank you for stopping by online. We hope that you will also come visit us in person, whether you are new to the area or have been pondering reconnecting with a Jewish community.

Or, if you are in a period of life change – like welcoming a new baby to your family, wondering when is the right time to start your child in religious school, or planning a wedding –  we would love to talk with you.

Please call the temple office at 540-667-1889 or email us at to arrange a time to come by to learn more about the Beth El community and programs.

And feel free to join us for services at any time.
