Our Chapels

Senville Chapel

This breeze-filled corridor with its brick walkway inlaid with the Star of David, offers both crypts and niches. Skylights enhance the lighting and connection to nature. A piece of the cornerstone of the Biblical site of Beth El in Israel is displayed linking this final resting place to our eternal heritage.

Rabbi Merle E. Singer Sanctuary

This warm, modern sanctuary space is the heart of worship and lifecycle events at Temple Beth El. It can be used for intimate gatherings or hold up to 450 people for larger funerals.

Rabbi Merle E. Singer Sanctuary

This glorious worship space has been upgraded with new lighting and acoustics, but its most iconic structure is the ark. Freestanding, created plank-by-plank, on-site by a shipbuilder when the synagogue was first built in 1977, and reaching toward the sky, it symbolizes nature reflecting the essence of a flower and a tree.  As light nourishes a tree, we by our practice of Judaism, keep the Torah alive, which is the Living Word of God. The ark branches up to meet the rays that stream in through the skylight above it. The ark’s doors may be seen as the petals of a flower; each time they open they reveal the Torah symbolizing the renewal of life. Or, the ark may be seen as a Tree of Life, in the heart of which thrives the Torah, a living document.

Beck Family Chapel

The new chapel is a peaceful oasis highlighted by natural wood surroundings, tall ceilings that reach towards the sky,  and six large windows behind the ark that illuminates the space with natural light.
