Dear friends,

We want to assure you that we at Temple Beth-El are closely monitoring the quickly developing effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.,

As per Governor Cuomo's latest directive, the Temple Beth-El office and building will be closed, and our staff and leadership are working from home.

Our ritual team continues to lead services online, so watch for Rabbi Victor's emails with instructions. If you have any questions about how to access the zoom services or for any other matter, please email Rabbi Victor directly, or call him at 845.235.2460.

We will miss seeing you in person but we're still available via email and through the TBE website. We will also be posting more on social media so connect with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

We are all in this together. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will follow guidance from public health officials and government agencies, so we can continue to support you as needed.

For more information about COVID-19 and what you can do to keep healthy and safe, visit the Centers for Disease Control at or the Dutchess County website.
