The Jewish community in Georgetown, SC was established before the American Revolution. Temple Beth Elohim, incorporated in 1904, has inherited a commitment to our Jewish heritage and traditions. We oversee a cemetery for our members which dates back to the Revolutionary War. Many of our members' families have been here for generations; some moved here from around the country, others are "snowbirds: who spend quality time with us for part of the year. We celebrate Mitzvahs together and rely on one another when we share grief.
Temple Beth Elohim is an inclusive Reform Jewish Community. Our temple family is a diverse multigenerational congregation who welcome all Jews, their partners and families, regardless of age, race, physical condition and sexual orientation. We strive to provide our members with a meaningful relationship with Torah, Israel, our community and with Jewish values. We abide by principles of justice, charity, healing the world and kindness to others. Currently, Lay Leaders conduct Shabbat services, holiday and Jewish rituals with continuity and vitality. Recent growth in our area has contributed to our congregation's desire to gain knowledge, expertise and professional Jewish leadership, as well as membership in Jewish organizations which will help us achieve these goals.
