A Message from our Cantor

As summer arrives, some of us take the opportunity presented by some additional leisure time to catch up on reading we have meant to do. Sometimes folks are committed to reading, but don't have any specific books in mind. In light of such a possibility, I am using my space to suggest a few books of Jewish content for your perusal. They range in age, tone and seriousness. If none of these grabs your attention, there are many others you might want to look into.

A Message from our President

On June 13th, we held our annual congregational meeting and I appreciate those members that put aside the time to attend. Thank you to Missy Kowalsky and Cecily Eidelhoch for serving on the board these past few years. The remaining board members remain the same and I thank them for caring about Temple Beth El.

A Message from our Executive Director

We have had a busy year. We have shared services with temple Emanu-El, the Schwartz Kallah and Rabbi Waldman weekend were shared and enjoyed by members of both Temples. It was a great learning experience, very nostalgic. The title of the weekend was The Jewish Community of Utica from Start to Finish and was a great success.
