Community Relations

Temple BethIOOB.TBE-Cantor.and.Torah.for.web El takes pride in its active role in the Charlotte interfaith and broader community.  Our Temple was selected by Mecklenburg Ministries as the 2008 Interfaith Congregation of the Year.  We have a vibrant Community Relations Committee that is dedicated to providing forums to learn about other faiths, as we educate the broader community about our own.

COMPARATIVE RELIGION SERIES

The Community Relations Committee sponsors an annual Comparative Religion Series which runs on Tuesdays in the winter and draws upwards of 300 people each week to learn about Judaism, Christianity, Islam and many more faiths and their respective views on pertinent issues in our lives and in the world today.

CHURCH VISITS

Temple Beth El has wonderful relationships with an abundance of religious houses of worship in our community. From visits to African American churches on Martin Luther King weekend, to visits to Myers Park Baptist when our clergy speak at services there, to simply visiting other house of faith as Temple Beth El representatives, you can help us to build bridges to the community beyond.

HOUSE BILL 2 RESOLUTION

In support of the LGBTQ community, we have passed a resolution regarding House Bill 2 (See Temple Beth El Resolution HB2).

DOMESTIC ABUSE RESOLUTION

In 2007 Temple Beth El not only formally acknowledged that abuse does happen in the Jewish community, but resolved to address it by becoming a “safe haven” – a community that promotes safety, justice and healing; and by working to end it through education and awareness (see Resolution on Domestic Abuse).
