Temple Beth El, Your Shul by the Sea, hosted a fundraising barbecue at #2 Bay Street, City Island, the exquisite home of Ken Binder and Steve Roth, with a glorious view of the water. Fifty four temple members as well as residents of City Island, friends and family member attended.

The fundraiser was initiated to help recoup uninsured costs of a burglary in January.
The food was delicious consisting of something for all tastes. Old friendships were renewed and new ones cultivated as interesting conversations emerged. Some people took time out from conversing to reflect on the beautiful view and gaze not only outwardly but also inwardly. For in this supportive community, the inner spirit is always nurtured.

If you are looking for a welcoming place to feel like one of the family, to engage in fulfilling conversation and to have your spirit and heart lifted, then please join along at 480 City Island Avenue for a Friday night Shabbat service and/or one of our cultural events for all are always welcomed.
