Welcome to Temple Beth El…….

In 1977 some early Jewish settlers in North Port and Englewood decided the time had arrived to become a true religious congregation and they incorporated as The North Port Jewish Center. The founding families eventually bought several acres on Biscayne Drive in North Port and went about building a home for their congregation.

As time passed, the decision to follow the practices of the Conservative movement and adopt the name of Temple Beth El was a natural progression.

Temple Beth El - North Port Jewish Center has had several religious leaders over the years. The current leader, Cantor Lyle Rockler, conducts all religious services, teaches classes and brings a strong commitment to the growth and vitality of the synagogue. Holy Days and festivals are observed throughout the year. Chanukkah festivities and Passover Seders have become community events. Other functions such as Omelet Brunches, concerts, Purim plays, Lunch ‘n’ Learn and continuing education are also bringing in new participants.

There is an active Sisterhood. The standing committees (Ritual, Membership, Fundraising, House and Grounds, Program Committee) are made up of dedicated and vibrant volunteers. Temple Beth El - North Port Jewish Center prides itself on being warm, welcoming, inclusive, egalitarian, nurturing and supportive. Congregants come from all parts of the world and backgrounds.

Cantor Rockler has guided many individuals in their desire for conversion to Judaism.  The active new residents of South Sarasota and North Charlotte Counties find Temple Beth El - North Port Jewish Center an affordable and friendly congregation that values the experience that everyone brings.

The synergy of new residents and existing members will carry the founders’ dreams for Temple Beth El - North Port Jewish Center well into the 21st century.
