Temple Beth El is the largest Reform Jewish Congregation in the Rockland, and one of the larger ones in the Northern New Jersey region. Our new Rabbi Michael Churgel, Cantor Arlene Frank, and our lay leadership welcome you to join us.
In November, we welcomed Rabbi Michael Churgel as the 3rd Senior Rabbi in the history of Temple Beth El at a special installation service.
Our Temple Youth Group, SVFTY, hosted over a hundred Jewish Youth from the National Federation of Temple Youth's Garden-Empire (NJ-NY) Region. Our Hagigah Kallah was a huge success.
