2020-2021 Kehilah Membership

Especially now during these tumultuous times in our world, we hope you continue to experience the importance and value of being part of the Temple B’nai Or family. People choose to experience that commitment and connection in different ways. Some choose to make their closest friends here at our Temple. Others connect intellectually in Jewish education programs or through worshipping together or engaging in charitable community events. Our Temple community is there to support each other, to celebrate Simchas, and bring comfort when there is hardship or loss.

To renew your kehilah membership today, please click here.

Before you head back out into the world and while you are still nestled in at home, please go on a treasure hunt.  We are looking for photos and videos to include in our future honoring of David and Jennie.  Plus we are working on a more general video for our use in marketing the Temple to new members.  So please dig through your old photos in boxes, on computers, phones, tablets, or wherever you store them.  We want everyone to be able to see themselves in the finished product.  Make sure you’re in it by sending your materials to  halliebeyer@gmail.com.

We would love your help!
