Our deeply held beliefs and principles which guide the actions and behaviors of the congregation:

TBE's congregational family is founded on the values of warmth, togetherness, openness, belonging, caring, and the sharing of Jewish living.

TBE values Jewish religious and cultural education for children and adults.

TBE is committed to the Reform movement and its response to Jewish and social issues.

TBE values the full opportunity for members to express their spirituality and belief in God.

TBE is a home and place to meet the needs of the congregation in regard to worship, Jewish identity and life cycle events.

The concept of Genesis (Temple Beth Emeth and St. Clare's Episcopal Church jointly owning our building) exemplifies our belief that people of different faiths can share, understand each other, and draw mutual strength from the relationship.
