Inclusiveness & Interfaith


My house shall be a house of prayer for all peoples. (Isaiah 56:7)


At Congregation Beth El, we welcome interfaith families of all backgrounds. We want non-Jewish spouses to feel at home at Beth El and to regard themselves as part of our congregational family. We regard an attitude of openness toward non-Jews and the wider community as a foundational principle of Reform Judaism.

While Beth El exists to support and celebrate the Jewish community, we welcome celebration with the non-Jews in our midst. The leadership of Beth El welcomes everyone's involvement to enrich us as a community.
