Temple Beth El has evolved as the primary center for Progressive Judaism in South Orange County. Although membership dues, facilities fund, and school fees cover some of the funding for our staff salaries, our utilities, and general maintenance, we rely on fundraising to generate the difference. Regardless of the method, giving to Temple Beth El is a great way to insure that generations to come will have a center for both Reform and Conservative Judaism in South Orange County. (Our Tax ID # is 95-3749325.)
