Welcome to Temple Beth El

Camp Kayetz
June 17 to July 12, 9:00 AM–3:00 PM
Camp Kayetz is Temple Beth El's own day camp. It's not sports camp.
It's not music camp; it's not art camp; it's not drama camp; it's not beach camp.
It's ALL of these, and so much more! It's all-inclusive FUN and it supports our kids' Jewish identities at the same time.
Get information and the registration form here.


Temple Beth El and Simcha Preschool will be CLOSED on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27.

For the temple and for purchase.

We have new Machzors for the High Holy Days. And, they are available for purchase—at cost—for our membership and community.
