Welcome to Temple Beth Or

Temple Beth Or – House of Light -- strives to be a beacon to all who enter our doors. We are a Reform congregation celebrating our Centennial anniversary in 2012. While our congregation may be 100 years old, our programming and practices combine the contemporary and vibrant with cherished, long-held traditions.

Our monthly service schedule is designed to meet the diverse needs of our congregants. You will find engaging sermons drawing from today’s most relevant societal issues … contemporary Jewish music … guest speakers who enlighten and educate us … all uniting our community as we seek meaning in our lives.

We believe in meeting each congregant where they are … welcoming that wonderful diversity is what makes us who we are. Our families comprise a multitude of backgrounds, from the youngest of young to our cherished seniors, traditional and non-traditional family units and lifestyles, lifelong Jews and Jews by choice, along with families of multi-cultures and faiths.

When we gather in worship, study, celebration, support, and works that create a more just world, we learn what unites us, strengthening our connection to each other and our own Jewish identity along the way.
