Bayit Va'Lev - Our Heart, Home & Future

What is Bayit Va’Lev?

Bayit Va’Lev is an opportunity for our congregation to celebrate its past, rejoice in the present, and prepare for its future. Congregation Beth El leaders have embarked on Bayit Va’Lev as an expression of our collective commitment to celebrate Congregation Beth El’s rich 100+ year history, rejoice in its vibrant present, and plan for a strong tomorrow.

Congregation Beth El will build and develop a strong future based on the successful achievement of 10 fundamental commitments

As a result of your generosity and commitment to the future of Beth El, the campaign recently passed the $1,000,000 mark in pledged funds!
