Welcome to Beth El - Poughkeepsie

  • Welcome

    Temple Beth El is a vibrant and egalitarian Conservative Jewish congregation serving the Jewish people of Dutchess and the Mid Hudson Valley for more than 80 years.

  • Celebrate

    Our award-winning religious school brings students together to learn and celebrate.

  • Community

    Shofar Over the Hudson combines the sound of the Shofar with the natural beauty of the Hudson River.  For centuries the sound of the Shofar has provided a moment of awakening and inspiration for the Jewish people.

  • History

    With expanding membership Temple Beth El needed a larger building.  In 1959 the congregation moved from Montgomery Street to our present home on 118 South Grand Avenue.

  • Goals

    A house of prayer: aiding our members in their search for meaning in life, fulfilling the spiritual needs and longing of our Jewish community, providing a path that brings us closer to each other and to God.
