Through education, awareness, support, and advocacy, Beth El stands strong with Israel. From programs and classes on Israel’s history and culture for all ages within our synagogue to Israel advocacy though participation in local and national programs and events, we affirm the central Jewish value of love of Israel.
We are committed to creating a personal connection with Israel whether through a range of programs to better understand Israel’s complex society or through individual opportunities to engage first-hand through visits to Israel. Each B’nai Mitzvah receives a certificate toward a trip to Israel upon completion of their Sokol Hebrew High School or Solomon Schechter High School studies, we encourage and participate in study-tour trips to Israel, a large number of our members attend the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington each year, and many of our members hold positions of leadership in Jewish national and international organizations. To promote religious pluralism in Israel, we also support The Masorti Movement in Israel.
