What's Going On

  • Help welcome Rabbi Kort to our congregation at a BBQ Picnic at Temple Beth Or on Sunday, July 29, from 10:30am to 1:30pm. We will provide hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken; pot-luck for BBQ grills, side dishes, drinks and desserts. Fun activities for young and old!

  • Did you know that Temple Beth Or and the Union for Reform Judaism are now offering an email subscription to ‘Ten Minutes of Torah‘?

    The ‘Ten Minutes of Torah‘ page lists the most recent short and pithy email posts on ‘Reform Voices of Torah’, ‘Celebrating Jewish Arts & Culture’, ‘Pursuing Social Justice’, ‘Israel Connections’, ‘Reform Life, Jewish Life’, and ‘The Rhythm of Jewish Time’.

    From there, select, “Sign up for Ten Minutes of Torah“, where you can subscribe to each of these newsletters, which will then be delivered weekly to your email mailbox. Don’t forget to indicate that you are a member of Temple Beth Or, to receive the co-branded TBO/URJ versions of these newsletters.

  • The Next Chapter members will be going to the Island Shakespeare Festival (ISF) on Whidbey Island (5476 Maxwelton Road, Langley) on Sunday, August 5, for the matinee of Sense and Sensibility. Arrive at 1:00 pm with your own picnic lunch, no alcohol. (Wine will be available for purchase.) This is an outdoor theater with a forest backdrop. The show starts at 2:00 pm. Deborah Nedelman and Mel Trenor will host this event and will provide dessert during the intermission. ISF is a “pay-what-you-will” theater, no tickets are needed. 
    More information will be sent as we get closer to the date. Click here to RSVP.


  • Temple Beth Or purchases Gift Cards at a discount and re-sells them at face value. Buy gift cards from us at no extra cost to you, and help us raise funds for our programs and events. We stock several popular cards and can order cards for a wide range of retailers. Buy cards for groceries, gas, clothing and of course, your favorite cappucino! Stock up on cards for holiday gift-giving or friends and family.

    PCC Natural Markets has opened a new store at 22621 Bothell Everett Highway, Bothell. TBO offers PCC gift cards at an initial purchase of $50. Once you purchase a gift card from TBO, you can recharge that gift card at any PCC and we will continue to receive 5% back on purchases made with your card. We can also send you cards on a monthly basis if that would be easier for you.

    If you need any extra gift cards for birthdays, graduation, Father’s Day, etc., let us know at scrip@templebethor.org . There’s someone out there who would love a gift card to Cabela’s, and we get 11% back! Other bonuses include:   Ruth’s Chris Steak House (12%), Lowes (5%), iTunes (10%), Dell (6%), and Sears (6%).”
