Welcome to Temple Beth Or!

Our warm, compassionate, vibrant, spirited, inclusive, and participatory Reform Jewish community is religiously and geographically diverse, serving Washington’s northern Puget Sound. Browse our Web site, attend a service or event, and join us!

Event Cancellations and Virtual Alternatives

The Temple building is closed, and the office is open for business via phone and email ONLY. Following state guidance, all in-person Temple activities through May are cancelled. We are scheduling remote learning, online adult education, and virtual Shabbat connections. See below and check our calendar for event schedules and resources. We will continue to update the website and Facebook event listings with the most current schedule changes, and will send emails to members and religious school families with calendar updates.

What's Going On

  • We are introducing several support tools for our virtual worship services to enhance your experience at home including: greeters from our Board, bulletins, and a flip-book prayer book to use during our more formal worship services.


    Service bulletins will be emailed out. They will include our misheberach–healing list, yahrzeit–memorial list, and community events. Some weeks, especially for our informal services, we will include song lyrics in the bulletin. You may want to print your bulletin in advance or choose to access on another device during the service. 

    Flip-Book Prayer Book

    For our more formal services we will use a flip-book version of our regular prayer book, Mishkan T’filah. The most comfortable way to use the flip-book is to access it on a different screen from the screen you are using for Zoom. For example, access Zoom on your desktop computer and access the flip-book prayer book on your phone or tablet.
