Beth El is a pluralistic community and welcomes members who have diverse backgrounds, ideas, levels of knowledge, and observance. We are an egalitarian Conservative congregation and a member of the Southeast Seaboard District of the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism, which hosts this website.

We offer an Orthodox Kehillah affiliated with the Orthodox Union for those who wish to worship in accordance with that tradition.

Our web site is filled with resources for you to explore from our current calendar to a history of our congregation and much much more. We welcome your comments and suggestions in order to make your on-line experience useful and fulfilling.

Thank you for visiting us!
