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:
810 720 9494 for further details.

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.
