As of this printing, according to Dr Richard Sternberg, our Covid advisor, transmission of the virus in Otsego County is at a low point. We will be able to meet in person for services going forward unless there is a change. For those attending in person we do recommend wearing masks, but it is not mandatory. However, to protect the elderly or those who are immunocompromised, we highly recommend it. For those who do not wish to attend in person, Zoom will be available.

Temple Beth El is an egalitarian congregation serving the Jewish community of the northern Catskills since 1935. We join together for prayer, celebrations, and life-cycle events in our beautiful synagogue at 83 Chestnut Street in Oneonta, New York.
As a community representing a variety of Jewish experiences, we are dedicated to the continuity of Jewish life and the shared expression of our traditions, values and culture in its many forms. Through prayer, learning, social events, commitment to each other and service to the community, we encourage a life-long connection to Judaism. Each member, at every age and at all levels of knowledge and practice, is supported, challenged, and encouraged to seek an increased understanding of her/himself and Judaism. Our Rabbi, Temple President, Board of Directors, Religious School Director, lay leadership, Men’s Club, Sisterhood, and religious school support our congregation’s goals and objectives.
Temple Beth El is located approximately halfway between Albany and Binghamton in historic downtown Oneonta and boasts members from several surrounding counties. We welcome you to join us. Wheelchair accessible.
