Join the Temple Beth El Family
Come grow with us, learn with us, worship with us, and socialize with us!
Thank you for your interest in Temple Beth El. We are the only Conservative congregation in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and we offer something for congregants of every age, from services, to religious school, to community involvement. We are a warm family-oriented congregation and we’re very involved in our local Lancaster community.
At Temple Beth El, you have many opportunities to participate in the life of our congregation. Meet new friends, worship on Shabbat and holidays, attend a family Shabbat dinner, take adult education classes, participate in Synagogue governance, or even suggest a new program.
Temple Beth El membership offers much more than just religious school or bar/bat mitzvah preparation! What about celebrating Simchat Torah, or eating under the sukkah on Sukkot, playing with other children at Tot Shabbat or borrowing Jewish books from the Library.
Our congregation offers lots of different programs for adults, both singles and couples. Explore how our Temple Beth El family can offer you paths to a more rich spiritual and social religious life.
Temple Beth El will not turn you down because of need. Our policy allows for accommodation from the dues schedule to reflect individual financial capability. No one will be denied membership due to financial circumstances.
A member of our staff, board or membership committee will be happy to discuss the benefits of membership and explain how you can get involved.
