women's spirituality

 

Women's Spirituality is an informal meeting that takes place a few times yearly. It is a place for women to share their experiences, and to discuss how these translate into their own spirituality. Sometimes the conversation centers on a book or theme, and sometimes is more open ended. It is always a place for women to speak their minds, and think about what spirituality means to them.

SAGE (Seniors for Arts, Growth, and Education)

Temple Beth-El is proud to offer a monthly opportunity for those who wish to build a warm and caring community of life–long learners. If you enjoy lively discussion, interesting, entertaining programming and relish the thought of burgeoning friendships then SAGE is the place for YOU and your FRIENDS!

Our mission is to offer varied, thoughtful programming which will be Temple-centered and offer a Jewish perspective whenever possible. We have no wish to compete with other fine local institutions but intend to cultivate a warm and embracing Jewish community for congregants and friends 65 years of age and older.

Earth Angels

"Whoever destroys a single life is considered to have destroyed the whole world, and whoever saves a single life is to have saved the whole world." 
- Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5

Help make your community a place of caring and kindness. 

Don’t miss the opportunity to become an Angel on Earth. The ways are simple: reach out to your neighbor or a friend in need, a stranger who needs comfort; give of yourself one hour a week, one hour a month, some cookies, a phone call, a visit or a card. 

Consider becoming a part of a unique group ready to serve individuals in our community who need us.
