Beth El offers several different membership categories to fit everyone’s needs – from Family to Single to Associate. Please contact us to receive a membership application.We also offer several groups with regular activities that we offer for your enjoyment, including some listed below:
Join Sisterhood as we
Serve our Synagogue
Support our Community
Enrich our Lives
Sisterhood activities this year include weekly Yoga Shalom, the Yom Kippur Break Fast, our fabulous Fall Fashion Show, a Hanukkah Party, Tu B’Shevat Seder, Sisterhood Shabbat, Miriam’s Seder, movie nights, and a bi-monthly book club (BELLES). We host the engraved brick walkway and our synagogue’s gift shop. We give gifts to b’nah mitzvah students, send TLC packages to our students away at school, and provide camper ships. Sisterhood of course supports our lively Religious School.
In the community we contribute to the anti-trafficking program SOAP and to My Brother’s Keeper, homeless at Jax Beach, and give appreciation to Ponte Vedra First Responders on Dec 25. We partner with Jacksonville Hadassah for a stimulating event, and in 2020 will host a joint spiritual retreat with Ahavat Chesed Sisterhood. We truly enhance our own lives in all the ways we strengthen our Jewish home at the Beach.
The Beth El Brotherhood is always looking for ways to engage the congregation’s membership. Our monthly Dinners with the Rabbi are always a great time! The food is delicious, and the conversation is engaging. Please come and join us as often as possible. We are always looking to add to our familiar faces.
Working with a committee is a great way to get involved and learn the most about Beth El. If you are interested in joining one of the committees listed below, please email us with your request at firstname.lastname@example.org
