Welcome!  We're delighted that you're interested in joining our Temple Beth El community.  We are the largest Conservative synagogue in Western Massachusetts, founded in 1913, and are affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts.  We offer a broad spectrum of religious, cultural, educational and social activities for all ages.

Our members are young and old, married and single, with and without children. Although they primarily live in Western Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut, we also have long-time members who have moved to other parts of the country and still maintain their membership and deep connection to Temple Beth El.

We invite you to contact our Membership Chair, Esta Farkas, or our Executive Director, Ralph Ritchie, with any questions and for more information.  Please feel free to participate in our services, classes and special programs to get a feel for our warm and welcoming community.

We look forward to meeting you!
