September | Message from our President


Temple Beth El has settled in at 1607 Genesee and we have been conducting services in person with Rabbi Geier. I hope one day soon you will join us on Shabbat and the festivals.

Our High Holiday services will be held in the main sanctuary at Temple Beth El conducted by Rabbi Geier, Elliott Rabin and special lay leaders. You will find the schedule of our holiday services in this issue of the Times.

We celebrated Cantor Kal Socolof’s retirement with festivities at the JCC on August 21st. After 36 years of devoted service, it was a fitting tribute. Please enjoy the photos of the event in this issue of the Temple Times.

Rabbi has begun Torah and Hebrew classes for adults. His classes are informative, lively and entertaining. It is never to late to learn!

We are keeping the 103 year-old Conservative Jewish presence in the Utica area alive. The success of our Temple lies with each and every one of you.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 5783,
