A card, a visit, a donation are always comforting to the bereaved. The family has requested that donations be made to Temple Beth Elohim, 31 Mt. Ebo Road North, Brewster, NY 10509; Regional Hospice and Home Care Center for Comfort Care & Healing, 30 Milestone Road, Danbury, CT 06810; or The Kevin Acrish Scholarship Fund, Trinity-Pawling School, 700 NY 22, Pawling, NY 12564.
We are a congregation that supports a wide range of programs and activities for members of all ages.
We want to build a community based on inclusives, where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, a Jew by birth or by choice.
Temple Beth Elohim, "House of God", is a Reform synagogue under the spiritual leadership of Rabbi Solomon B. Acrish, Ph.D. While Reform in orientation, the Temple practices liberal Judaism within an atmosphere that is warm and traditional. The Temple, which is affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, strives to be a center for religious observance, for Hebrew and cultural education, and for family and social life.
Temple Beth Elohim is open year round to its congregants and many visitors. Celebration of each of the holidays on the Jewish calendar enables the congregation to experience and become part of the history and traditions of Judaism, to share these with friends and neighbors, and to strengthen Jewish identity. For members drawn to activity and service there are ample opportunities for doing mitzvot for the Temple and our community through our Sisterhood and Men's Club.
