Congregation Beth Torah was constructed as a family home, a place to play and pray, a place to rejoice and rejuvenate, and a place to love and learn. Here is where we build for the future, a place where children yet to be conceived will romp; where young people will learn together and intertwine their lives; where the old will come for solace and the peace of knowing that we are an eternal people. We welcome you to our home. We extend the warmest of friendships and offer you a place to laugh, grow, and study.
In honor of their marriage, Rabbi Levin and Kacy will be making contributions to two charities they hold close to their hearts. The couple has requested no gifts, your presence is truly a gift in itself. If you would like to honor their marriage with a contribution, please join them in supporting Joel's Ride Wheels for Meals and/or Hiddush for Religious Freedom and Equality. Joel's Ride Wheels for Meals supports Beth Torah's social justice program while Hiddush for Freedom and Equality works toward religious pluralism in Israel.
