The Beth Torah

Culture Club

Offers activities and events throughout the year for Beth Torah members and non-members alike. For us “culture” includes film, art, theater, technology, Jewish history, symphony, museums, architecture and more.
Take advantage of this chance to do new things and —  when the Beth Torah campus reopens — meet new people.

 
Everyone is welcome, so plan to include family and friends.
