Temple Beth Elohim, "House of God", is a Reform synagogue. 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, Men's Club, and Youth Groups.
A sampling of Temple Beth Elohim's offerings to the Jewish community include:
The Temple began in 1950 with ten Jewish families using space in a local church. Eventually they built a fairly small building on Route 22, where they grew into a much larger congregation. Our new building on Mt. Ebo Road North was completed for occupancy in December 2006. With amazing views of the Hudson Valley in every season of the year, we have settled in to this wonderful new space. Our Rabbi, Solomon B. Acrish, has been with the Temple since 1966, an amazing 50 years!
We offer an opportunity for those wishing to explore, experience, and celebrate Judaism in a Reform setting, fostering a warm and friendly community devoted to enriching our members’ lives.
