DAILY MINYAN, SHABBAT, AND CHILDREN’S SERVICES

Inclusive. Relevant. Joyful.

We are a synagogue that prays, learns, and celebrates together. And you are always welcome to join us, participating as much or as little as you like.

As the pre-eminent Conservative synagogue in the area, our morning minyan is well-attended seven days a week. A light breakfast follows services daily, with a hot sit-down breakfast served on Friday mornings, and a wonderful oneg/Kiddush each Shabbat. Please join us, and stay for a nosh!

And for an extra-special spiritual experience, don’t miss our beloved Shabbat Services On The Beach — every Friday evening all summer long.

Join us for breakfast after daily minyan, and a wonderful oneg following Shabbat morning services!

Our Siddur

In Jewish tradition, a Siddur is more than a book, it is the living voice of G-d and the Jewish people. Siddur Lev Shalem blends Hebrew liturgy with contemporary language English translations, explanatory materials, modern poetry, historical sources, meditations and inspirational material. The introduction of this Siddur in our congregation places Beth El at the forefront of the Conservative movement in our area and around the country, and provides a unique opportunity for all of us to enhance our spirituality and religious experience at services.

You can inscribe a personalized dedication into the front of a Siddur Lev Shalem for a donation of $36 per book. Download the form.

Children’s Services

Every Shabbat and holiday, children up to age six can enjoy an interactive hour of song, prayer, story time, Shabbat blessings and food. Designed for preschool children and their parents/caregivers, it’s a fun & exciting way to nurture a lasting connection to Judaism. We hope you join us!
