A love and appreciation of our Jewish heritage is an integral part of our program.

Each module has three tracks, which means you get to pick what you learn!

VOLUNTEERISM AT BETH EL

We dream of turning Beth El into a model community of care, one that supports our members through all phases of life. We also want to be a good communal partner that attends to the needs of the larger community. To turn this dream into a reality we created several new and exciting initiatives that will enhance our Chesed, Social action and Community Building efforts. This work will only succeed if you become a partner too. Communal institutions, like Beth El, are at their best when volunteering is part of the culture. We have amazing volunteers at Beth El, but we need more! 

If you are interested in partnering with us in this dream, please contact us at volunteer@bethelnr.org.
