SHALOM

Temple Beth El is a welcoming congregation of over 300 families in Portland, Maine, affiliated with United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. TBE is an open and inviting kehilla (community) in which each congregant can find an opportunity for individually meaningful religious expression.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to be an embracing, supportive and vibrant community which observes Conservative Judaism and is committed to perpetuating Jewish values, culture and tradition. Temple Beth El honors the diversity of its members and is committed to their spiritual, intellectual and religious growth.

May Our Doorway

May the door of this synagogue be wide enough to receive all who hunger for love, all who are lonely for fellowship. 
May it welcome all who have cares to unburden, thanks to express, hopes to nurture. 
May the door of this synagogue be narrow enough to shut out pettiness and pride, envy and enmity. 
May its threshold be no stumbling block to young or straying feet. 
May it be too high to admit complacency, selfishness, and harshness. 
May this synagogue be, for all who enter, the doorway to a richer and more meaningful life.

    ~ The New Mahzor, Prayer Book Press, 1998.
