Interfaith Families

"When strangers reside with you in your land, you shall not wrong them. The strangers who reside with you shall be to you as your citizens; you shall love each one as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt; I the Eternal am your God."

-- Leviticus 19:33-34

“Ahavat ger”-- welcoming the stranger-- is among the most important tenets of Reform Judaism.

Many of our most active members are non-Jewish spouses. Our congregation family is enriched by welcoming people of all backgrounds and we respect that not everyone is ready to close the door on the religion of their choice or upbringing. No one will ever be pressured to convert! There is a place for you and your family with us at Temple Beth-El.
