Lay Participation at Services

We welcome the participation of congregants in our worship services in a variety of ways. 

We practice Audacious hospitality! We want everyone to feel welcome at Temple Beth-El. Greeting people as they enter the building or our sanctuary is very important. Sign up to be a Greeter on Shabbat.

If you would like to participate in our service by reading Torah, by offering the D'var Torah, offer the Torah Blessing, by Lifting the Torah after is is read (hagbah), by opening the ark, click the link below.  If you have never written a D'var Torah (or if you have) we will give you resources and guide you along the way. I want to participate in Shabbat Services!
