Services at Temple Beth El  

 

 

Temple Beth El holds services on Erev Shabbat (Shabbat evening) at 7:30 pm at Temple Beth El on most weeks.  Sometimes (usually the first Shabbat of the month) the service begins at 7pm.  Please check the website calendar for up-to-date information.

Some services are lead by our Ivriah (religious school) students. Some are lead by our FLRTY (Flint Reform Temple Youth) members. Some services are held in Grand Blanc, a nearby suburb, and on those occasions, no service is held at Temple Beth El. Please consult the home page for updated details on forthcoming services.

With the exception of the High Holydays, Temple Beth El celebrates the Jewish festivals on the closest Shabbat to the festival.

Temple Beth El holds an Erev Rosh Hashanah service, a Rosh Hashanah morning service, a Kol Nidrei service, and all-day services on Yom Kippur.

In addition, on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mornings, there is a short service for the 2 - 8 year-olds and their significant others! 

Please contact the Temple office:

TZEDAKAH

 

In Judaism, the act of Tzedakah is an obligation.  There are many ways in which we can fulfill that duty.  One very simple and meaningful way is to sponsor a food basket in honor of or in memory of someone.  The Women’s Shelter at the YWCA provides support to women and children who are victims of domestic violence.  When sponsoring a food basket, you, yourself are giving much needed things such as food and personal hygiene items.  It lets them know that someone cares about them.  For $25 you can fulfill part of your Jewish obligation in giving to this charity.  Your name, along with your honoree’s name will be read during the Shabbat services in which you are sponsoring the food basket.  Your name and your honoree’s name will also be in Rabbi’s weekly e-mail as well as in the Bulletin.  With the High Holy Days just around the corner, there is no better time than now to perform this mitzvah.

 

On any Friday evening, it is always nice to have flowers brighten up the bima.  For $25 you can brighten up the Shabbat in honor of someone or in memory of someone. 

 

I am available to take your calls at:

 810-733-1129 or 810-287-9179

or you may e-mail me at auntnanc123@yahoo.com .   

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Shaping Israel’s Soul is Up to Us

by Rabbi Bennett Miller Earlier this month, Jews the world over poured into synagogues to “afflict our souls” on the holy day of Yom Kippur – to search within ourselves to atone, forgive, and ultimately emerge renewed. K’lal Yisrael (the community of Israel) is afflicting its own soul right now, too. Both real and existential […]

Saying YES to Youth

by Rosanne Selfon Over 100 years ago, 156 American women representing 5,000 women in 51 sisterhoods gathered to found the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods (NFTS), renamed Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) in 1993. These women united to fortify their Jewish identities, perform mitzvot, and collectively support the Reform movement. One of their first endeavors […]

“And you shall order schnitzel…”

By Bradley Egel People frequently talk about generational leadership. The Hebrew phrase, l’dor vador, literally means “from generation to generation,” and is most often applied to the handing down of leadership from one generation to the next. If a person is lucky enough to be present at a bar or bat mitzvah, they likely will […]
