Our tradition teaches in Ethics of Our Fathers, “Do not separate yourself from the community.” Therefore, it is our responsibility to help provide for our Jewish community. We here in San Diego are so blessed that we can further the array of Jewish causes during our lifetime. Central to our Jewish connection is our synagogue, Congregation Beth El, through which learning and active participation takes place. It is fitting and appropriate for us to help provide for its future so that others can benefit from its continued role in the Jewish community.
