Mission Statement

Our Mission


Temple Beth-­El of Poughkeepsie, a Conservative synagogue in the beautiful Hudson Valley, welcomes people from a wide range of backgrounds. 

We are a spiritual home for a diverse, inclusive, egalitarian congregation that cares deeply about imparting the love of Judaism to this and future generations.

As a community, we are actively engaged in exploring meaningful practices for all ages through study, programming, prayer, social action and volunteerism. We look to bond with others who seek justice and human dignity. 

Although our services are traditional, our approach is not. We embrace innovation as we work together to enhance the spiritual and intellectual experience of our members. 

Join us and share the journey.
