Welcome to Temple Beth El

Temple Beth El is a Conservative congregation established in 1935 and affiliated with United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, serving the needs of the Jewish community in Oneonta, NY.

As a community of Conservative Jews, we are dedicated to the continuity of Jewish life and the shared expression of our sacred traditions, values and our way of life.  Through prayer, learning, commitment to each other and service to all, we encourage a life-long connection to God, Torah and Israel.

Our Synagogue is an active Jewish community whose members’ lives reflect a sense of belonging and commitment to each other, to our local communities, Israel, and the larger Jewish world.  Each member, at every age and at all levels of knowledge and practice, is supported, challenged, and encouraged to seek an increased understanding of themselves and Judaism.  Our Rabbi, Temple President, Board of Directors, Cantorial Soloist, Educators, Lay Leadership, and infrastructure support our congregation’s goals and objectives.

Temple Beth El is located approximately halfway between Albany and Binghamton in beautiful Oneonta. Our membership of 80-plus families is drawn from several surrounding counties. The Temple is handicapped accessible and all ages are welcome.
