About Temple Beth El of Somerset
Some people choose a synagogue because they seek meaningful spiritual activity and guidance; some because they want to make Jewish friends for themselves and their children; some because they wish to pass the traditions of Judaism along to their children through religious education. Whatever your reason, we invite you to consider Temple Beth El of Somerset. Since its inception, Temple Beth El has furthered the ideals of Conservative Judaism by providing its members with a variety of religious, educational, social and cultural services. Its proudest achievement is the creation and continuous nurturing of a warm, caring congregation, spanning all age groups and finding in Judaism the basis for rich, fulfilling lives. A vibrant congregation guided by a young, energetic rabbi, Temple Beth El is small enough to know every member and large enough to provide a full range of Jewish activities. Temple Beth El of Somerset is affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, the parent body of Conservative congregations in the United States. Founded in January 1963, the Temple then moved to its present location on Hamilton Street.
