Congregation Beth-El Zedeck

Congregation Beth-El Zedeck in the fall

Beth-El Zedeck (The House of the God of Righteousness) embraces the warmth and richness of our religious civilization while keeping pace with the changes of modern Jewish thought and practice. We are affiliated with both Reconstructing Judaism and the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, supporting equal participation by women and men in every aspect of the congregation.

Beth-El Zedeck is a traditional, yet innovative synagogue where we experience Judaism as “the evolving religious civilization of the Jewish people.” We are a large congregation, yet we are dedicated to creating an environment of personal warmth, caring, inclusion and spiritual growth for all members. We are committed to Torah (learning), Avodah (worship) and G’milut Hasadim (deeds of lovingkindness).

Our biblical motto is Tzedek Tzedek Tirdof — “Justice, justice you shall pursue” (Deuteronomy 16:20), obligating us to be agents of Tikkun Olam, the perfection of society and the world. We are proud of our continued commitment to the welfare of our local community, our state and all humanity.
