Watch a video, “High Holy Day Conversation with Rabbi Kort“, to help your family prepare for the High Holy Days!
A conversation with Rabbi Rachel Kort on preparing your family for the upcoming High Holy Days:
Temple Beth Or welcomed Rabbi Kort and her family to our congregation at a BBQ Picnic in late July, 2018. Check out some of the photos! A great time was had by all.
There are a lot of amazing things happening at Beth Or and we want to make sure our physical space is ready. We are looking for volunteers to drop in anytime between 11am-4pm on August 19thand 26th to help prepare downstairs for High Holy Days, Religious School, Adult education and more. This is great for families, singles, people who are active and those that are not quite as active. Plus, we will provide lunch to volunteers both days. Please contact us to let us know if you are participating. Thank you!!
