Strategic Plan

Through the 2020-2021 year our community took a deep dive to identify our values, priorities and goals. These represent the input of hundreds of TBESOC's members and vested stakeholders.

As of Summer 2021, champions of each goal are working to create actionable plans to achieve the priorities and goals.

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.
