Special Services Announcement Due To Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

We are now re-opened with a maximum of 50 people at services. Here is the link to the Sign-Up Genius for Shabbat services Friday, May 14th and  Saturday, May 15th.  Please make sure to sign up everyone who is coming including children, as they are included in our maximum number of 50 people.

Note: The deadline to sign-up for the above Shabbat services is no later than noon on Thursday, May 13th.

For Beth El to stay open, we must follow all of the recommended protocols to fight the spread of COVID-19.  Click here for the protocols. In addition, in order to attend any service, reservations are required through our Sign-Up Genius and a signed waiver must be received in the office prior to services.  Individual waivers must be signed by each adult person and one signed for all children. These will be kept in the office in an alphabetical file. You will only need to submit and sign a waiver one time. We will be sending an email notification when we are accepting reservations for services through Sign-Up Genius. However, we will also still be utilizing the online tools to allow you to be part of services if you are not ready to return to the synagogue right now.

Welcome To Congregation Beth El

Sharing Judaism, Enriching Lives

Congregation Beth El, the oldest conservative synagogue in Virginia, is dedicated to the perpetuation of traditional Judaism in the South Hampton Roads area. Beth El’s more than 500 member families take pride in its long history and its primary purpose – to enable Conservative Judaism to meet the religious, educational and cultural needs of today’s Jewish community. The congregation maintains a complete program of activities in keeping with that fundamental purpose.

Over the years Beth El has played a leading role in the Tidewater Jewish community as well as in the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, the national association of conservative congregations. The congregation is dedicated to the continuation of this record of service to God and our community
