Who We Are
Who We Are
Beth El is a warm, friendly and vibrant congregation located in South Orange, New Jersey. In addition to our home town, members come from the surrounding communities of Maplewood, West Orange, Millburn/Short Hills, Livingston and from various towns in Morris and Union counties.
Beth El is a conservative, inclusive, egalitarian community. We offer a wide range of religious, educational and social activities for all ages -- from toddlers to seniors, and for all walks of life -- from newlyweds to empty nesters and interfaith families to same sex couples. We want everyone to feel comfortable at Beth El, so let us know if we're missing something! As you review our website you will find extensive descriptions of our programming & events, various worship services, and education programs from preschool to adult learning, many of which have been recognized for their excellence, winning both local and national awards.
Over the past year, Rabbi Francine Roston has re-energized our religious services, broadened our learning opportunities and enhanced our cultural programs. Congregation Beth El has also created various Shabbat experiences which includes Beth El Friday Night Live! instrumental services and various choices on Shabbat mornings.
We invite you to come to a Shabbat service or any of our wide range of programs and special events. Please introduce yourself. We're sure we'll connect. It happens all the time. We can't explain it, you'll have to see for yourself.
