Members should have received attendance tickets and an Information booklet by now. Please contact our office if that is not the case. Send in the included Registration Form to sign up for childcare, participate in services, register for meals, and/or make a donation. Non-members can download an information booklet here, detailing policies and costs.
Please remember that you must show your invitations in order to be admitted to most services.
Temple Beth Or’s Mitzvah Corp has been a hallmark of our community. We are the support system for Temple families in times of need. It takes a village to provide a safety net when something turns your life in unexpected directions due to injury, accidents, health issues, or family upsets, to name just a few. Currently, only a small group of people do all this on a regular basis.
We need more participation from our members in providing help to families who need our support. We all find ourselves in need of support sometime. You don’t need to know the people you are helping, your first introduction to them can be when you are reaching out to provide support. Join us in this critical service to your temple families!
Click here to sign up for our online application that notifies volunteers when our members need meals, home or hospital visits, or check-in phone call connections. You will then get a confirmation request, and that’s it! Please feel free to contact us for help signing up, of to add your name to our volunteer list.
Temple Beth Or members have now been mailed the January, February and March 2019 issues of “The ORacle” newsletter. We stopped publishing this printed newsletter several years ago, but have resurrected it as another way to communicate with our members. Back issues are also available online here. Please contact us to let us know what you think, provide comments, or request to be on the mailing list.

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.
Check our our new Volunteer Forum, where you can recognize Temple Beth Or volunteers, and view current volunteer opportunities. Right now, we are featuring our recently-retired Calendar Coordinators, and looking for volunteer(s) to post events on our online calendars.
