Making Beth El Better

Welcome to our “construction zone” page. Here we will document the step-by-step process of updating the south wing of the building as well as our new playground for the Pre-School. A great deal of planning has gone into both projects, and thanks to the generosity of several donors, we are now moving forward with these capital improvement projects. Keep checking back to see the progress. If you have any questions, reach out to our Executive Director Jeff Baden at
