  • SanJuan6 weeks after Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, 80 % of the population is still without power, and many places remain without clean water.  Members of Temple Beth Shalom, the reform synagogue in San Juan, report that their building suffered damage and the overall situation for citizens of Puerto Rico is critical with widespread hunger and thirst.  Beth Shalom has started a fundraiser not only to help get their Temple functioning again but also to support other local recovery efforts.  The Temple Beth Or Social Action Committee is asking for donations for Puerto Rico recovery through the Temple Beth Shalom Hurrican Relief Fund.

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

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.
