Loading Events

Join us Yom Kippur Afternoon at 2:00pm for Beth El Talks, our community’s opportunity to draw inspiration from the stories and journeys of fellow Temple Beth El members.

In celebration of Israel’s 75th birthday, we welcome four remarkable members of the Temple Beth El community to share their unique experience and perspective on Israel, her history and today.

Join us in person at the Schaefer Family Campus. No registration required.

Beth El Talks will be livestreamed here, and will be available on YouTube immediately following the broadcast.

Nadine Fahoum

Growing up as an Arab-Israeli in Haifa, Nadine began to play tennis at the age of nine. By the age of 11, she won Israel’s national championship, and held the title of Israel’s number one tennis player until the age of 18. She competed for Israel on the world stage, including the US Open and Wimbledon juniors. Her story is “about the unifying power of a game, a mother’s vision, and the endless possibilities when we pursue what we love.”

Rabbi Mordecai Schreiber

Born in Haifa, Rabbi Mordecai Schreiber witnessed the birth of the State of Israel as a boy, and grew up with the newly born Jewish State. As a rabbi, he served Reform congregations in the U.S. and Central America. A master translator, he served as national education director for BBYO in Washington, DC. He is the author of books about prayer, the Bible, the Holocaust, and the State of Israel.

Lee and Izzy Rotter

Born in Israel and raised in Ultra- Orthodox families, Lee and Izzy each left their homes and way of life. A few years after getting married and having two children, they moved from Jerusalem to Boca Raton. They will share their extraordinary journey, and how they came to find their chosen path to Judaism at Temple Beth El, where they have found a spiritual home, friends, and a community.
