Our Mission

Temple Beth El of South Orange County is a welcoming Jewish home where individuals and families come together to celebrate, explore, and engage in diverse Jewish practices through mitzvot: prayer, learning and acts of loving kindness.

Our Vision

As the Samueli Center for Progressive Judaism, we honor Judaism of the past by making it relevant today and for generations to come. We envision a future where we connect Jewish living with a life of meaning, fulfilment, and the opportunity to serve others.  We are stewards of a Jewish future in South Orange County.
