11 Pillars


“Love is not a feeling, It’s an action, it’s a decision.”
– Rabbi Harold Kushner

Love is a transformative force that connects us to one another and to the Divine. Love and compassion are essential for cultivating meaningful relationships and building a strong and supportive community.

At Temple Beth El, we embrace the timeless Torah teaching “Love your Neighbor as yourself” as a guiding principle in our community. This profound commandment reminds us of the interconnectedness of humanity and the importance of extending love and compassion not only to others but also to ourselves. Inspired by the teachings of Rav Kook, we recognize that self-love is an essential component of a healthy and fulfilling spiritual life. He emphasized the significance of nurturing our inner selves, acknowledging our own worth, and practicing self-care as a means to cultivate a deeper connection with the Divine. 

Temple Beth El

By fostering a culture of self-love and self-compassion, we strive to create a community that supports and uplifts one another, recognizing that when we care for ourselves, we are better equipped to care for others. At Temple Beth El, we embrace love as a transformative force, both in our relationships with others and in the relationship we cultivate with ourselves.
