Welcome to Temple Beth El. We are an egalitarian Conservative congregation who welcome all. We reach out to interfaith couples, young and not so young, singles and families. We are particularly child friendly. It is a joy to watch our children, those just old enough to walk through those almost Bar or Bat Mitzvah age, participate in our Shabbat services. Join us and enjoy a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Beth El Through the Years

Temple Beth El is a Conservative congregation.

Over 100 years ago, a group of Jewish people met to establish a synagogue to meet the needs of the then tiny Patchogue Jewish community. A synagogue was built at the corner of Oak Street and Jayne Avenue, which, to this day, remains the center of Jewish life in this area. When originally built, it had a small balcony for the women and was heated by a large, cantankerous, pot-bellied stove.

In 1931, the community realized that it had outgrown its quarters and plans were formulated to build a larger synagogue. The new structure was completed in 1933 and dedicated by the Lieutenant Governor of New York State, the Honorable Herbert H. Lehman. The mortgage was burned in 1944.

A new addition to our temple was built in 1968. It includes a modern sanctuary and a social hall, complete with bridal room and facilities for a caterer. Today with our membership of about 300 families, we are successfully meeting the needs of our Jewish community.
