High Holiday Seating

Aug 05 2018

Dear Friends,

As the season progresses,  we hope you and your families are enjoying another summer in Sullivan County.  Congregation Temple Beth-El, remains  a unique stalwart of Conservative Egalitarian Jewish tradition in the ‘Borscht Belt’.

 Rabbi Mitchell Blank with the cantorial assistance of Dr. Len Zimmerman continue Shabbat services thru Labor Day weekend. Shabbat services, followed by our ‘Fabulous  Kiddush’  and socializing, have been attracting folks from in and around the area. Rabbi Mitchell’s  ‘Kiddush and Learn’ discussion series on Jewish Ethics are well attended and appreciated. Rabbi Neal Loevinger will be returning for the High Holiday Services.

A special thanks to our volunteers and attendees, particularly Cindy Shechter, Gerry Solomon, and Len Zimmerman, who help to create a truly unique and meaningful Beth-El experience. Weekly floral arrangements provided have added to the beauty of each Shabbat. Our thanks to Max and Elita Shapiro.   Member sponsorship of the Kiddush- Luncheons has allowed expansion of this popular schmooze to delicious heights. These weekly Shabbat services are needed for the shul to remain vital, and for us to ‘be there’ for our neighbors when needed! Just a few Shabbats remain this summer, so plan on joining us.

Please be aware that the holidays fall early this year, and we may have space issues.  We have selected an early deadline for receiving completed requests and checks so that additional seating downstairs (rec hall) might be considered by the Board of Directors.

High Holiday seat requests MUST BE RECEIVED BY  Monday, August 20, 2018 to allow appropriate planning. 


Thank You for your cooperation!

Larry Seitelman
