Mission and Vision



The mission of Temple Beth El is to inspire a passionate commitment to Jewish life, learning, community and spiritual growth.


Temple Beth El of Boca Raton seeks to be a deeply compelling center of Reform Judaism, integrating the wisdom of Torah and tradition with the modern world in which we live.  Our congregation will:

  •     Welcome, involve and inspire all who enter, embracing the unique contributions of every individual.
  •     Reach out to the larger community to encourage participation in synagogue life.
  •     Celebrate, grieve, heal and grow together through all seasons of life.
  •     Strive to be a learned community that questions, studies, and honors the gift of Torah and the covenant with God.
  •     Engage in inspiring worship and transformative experiences of Jewish spirituality.
  •     Share a love and responsibility for each other, our community and country, for Israel, and for the future of the Jewish people.

Strategic Plan

The vision that has guided Temple Beth El  is illustrated in the strategic goals, objectives and action steps called the Strategic Plan. This plan was developed with the full participation of clergy, staff, lay leadership and the congregation through a series of meetings, workshops, congregational forums and a congregational survey.
