What's happening at TBE

TBE’s Board of Directors recently adopted a Statement of Ethical Principles.  It begins: 

Temple Beth El is a vibrant and inclusive Jewish congregation located in Augusta, Maine. We adopt this Statement of Ethical Principles to affirm our identity as a welcoming, safe, and inclusive sanctuary for all who come through our doors. Jewish tradition teaches that every person is created b’tzelem elohim, in the Divine image. Accordingly, the cornerstones of this Statement are nondiscrimination, mutual respect, and conduct towards each other and the community at large that embodies the Jewish values of kavod (respect), bitachon (safety), and chesed (lovingkindness).
