@TBE20s30s, Temple Beth-El’s group for people in their 20s and 30s, is dedicated to creating Jewish community by connecting to Judaism, arts and culture, spirituality, tradition, the city of San Antonio, and to each other!  We create authentic Jewish experiences through social, intellectual, spiritual, and recreational programming based on what YOU want.  We strive to enhance our leadership skills, develop our Jewish identity, and improve our world by tikkun olam (repairing our world), all while having fun!

As part of the Temple Beth-El community, we follow their mission “to create a welcoming and vibrant” environment.  @TBE20s30s is committed to this warm atmosphere and encourages everyone to attend events and/or take on a leadership role.

In order to be able to have active participation, programming YOU want, and new members, we need to hear from you!
