Join Our Community
Responsibility for our community has been a central tenet of Jewish life for centuries. At Temple Beth El, we foster a community of mutual respect, responsibility and relationship where each congregant takes seriously the notion that we must care for and connect with each other.
Through a dynamic network of smaller communities, Temple Beth El singles, couples and families knit rich networks around spirituality, worship, social action and justice, learning, holiday observance and areas of personal interest.

Explore our Cohorts
TriBEs (Small Groups)
TriBEs are small groups of Temple Beth El Members that help make our big community feel small. They help every person be a part of something sacred. Through playing together, praying together, learning together, acting together, caring for one another, and being accountable to each other, a large Temple becomes a small community where members can deepen connections and share Jewish experiences, conversations, and celebrations with other congregants.
The Porch at TBE is a thriving Young Adults and Families with Young Children community. This cohort is a broad community that builds connections between Jewish young adults and families – from recent college graduates to parents of preschoolers. This diverse community offers a plethora of community-building events, all seeking to give people many portals into Jewish life where they can find deep personal meaning and build significant relationships with others engaged in Jewish living.
Youth & Teens
Our Temple Youth Groups are an important part of Temple Beth El’s commitment to engaging our children and teens. Our youth program offers different groups and opportunities TBE Youth and TBE Teens to participate in activities structured to foster lifelong Jewish values and forge friendships that last a lifetime.
Interested in joining one of our existing cohorts or starting a new TriBE (Small Group)? We’d love to hear from you.
