Shalom and Chag Sameach to you all.
It has been a busy time at Temple Beth-El with a full High Holy Days programs and so much more happening.
Our renovation – “Building for the Next 90” – continues and we see the finish line off in the distance.
While there have been some supply issues that have caused our Renovation to go longer than planned, we are so pleased with how it is progressing.
This will be a build that will provide a new gathering space, secure facilities and technology, and revitalized worship spaces.
This was a project needed doing, and we are so proud of its’ progress.
Our Men’s Club had a busy month!
Firstly, with a social day at the Diamond that was well attended with lots of good cheer.
Then, with our annual building of the Sukkah in preparation for Sukkot.
Thank you to Men’s Club who continue to be such an important and engaged part of our TBE Family.
Then came the big event – our 2023 / 5784 High Holy Days. Held in our renovated Sanctuary, we had a big turnout with lots of big smiles.
For some who had not been in our renovated Sanctuary, there were lots of “oooh’s and ahhhhh’s.”
Beth-El is grateful for the presence of our Guest High Holy Day Hazzan – Cantor David Childs – who brought so much to our services.
His amazing voice, gentle presence and enthusiastic nature was a delight on the bimah.
From Rosh Hashanah, to Tashlich at Deep Run Park, to the multiple Family Services, then to the culmination of Yom Kippur.
Then to the joy of multiple Hakafot as we held and danced with our Torah scrolls to the amazing sounds of our TBE Underground Band.
