Preparing to Make Passover More Meaningful

Passover, one of the most observed Jewish holidays, is almost upon us. While most of us are familiar with hosting or attending a seder, we give less thought to our Passover preparations. But Passover is not just about the seder. The preparations we make before the holiday begins can make our Passover even more meaningful. Read more...

75th-anniversaryTBE's 75th Anniversary

Saturday, October 24th

Calumet Club, Augusta

Temple Beth El will be celebrating our 75th Anniversary this fall. The committee is hard at work planning the wonderful events, which will include a gala dinner on Saturday, October 24, 2015.

TBE-kiddush-cupTo commemorate this momentous occasion, we have commissioned Toby Rosenberg, a noted Maine Judaica ceramic artist, to produce a beautiful Kiddush cup. We will have cups available to view in June. The cup will cost $75, some of which will be a fund raiser for the Temple. The cup may also be personalized with your family name in gold for an additional $10. This would also be a wonderful gift for children and grandchildren to celebrate our existence in Central Maine for 75 years. L’dor v’dor!

Cups must be preordered to receive them by the date of the gala. You may download an order form here. Look for additional news of our Anniversary in future emails and Newsletters.
