As noted in our message to the community, the Beth El building is closed as of March 15, 2020. Based on the CDC’s and state and local health agencies’ recommendations to encourage social distancing, we at Beth El intend to put that principle into practice.
We will be using Zoom, a videoconferencing platform, for many of our online offerings. Click here for a short tutorial on how to access a Zoom meeting.

Kol Koloteinu Shiur with Rabbi Mike Moskowitz, “Allyship as Spiritual Practice”
Sunday, June 7, 10:30 am
Since Rabbi Moskowitz cannot visit for our scheduled Kol Koloteinu scholar-in-residence weekend, he has graciously agreed to give a virtual presentation.
Rabbi Mike Moskowitz is the Scholar-in-Residence for Trans and Queer Jewish Studies at Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, the world’s largest LGBT synaguge. He is a deeply traditional and radically progressive advocate for trans rights and a vocal ally for LGBTQ inclusivity. Rabbi Moskowitz received three Ultra-Orthodox ordinations while learning in the Mir in Jerusalem and in Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ. He is a David Hartman Center Fellow and the author of Textual Activism. His writings can be found at www.rabbimikemoskowitz.com.
