Code of Ethics
As a sacred community, we strive at all times to exemplify the interrelated values of holiness (kedusha), compassion (rachamim), justice (tzedek), decency and respect (derech eretz), kindness (Hesed,) and honesty and integrity (yosher). The following code of ethics is built upon these values.
Temple Beth El has adopted an Ethics code and provides members of its community with a confidential avenue for addressing alleged breaches of that code. The synagogue is committed to promptly investigating any reported violations and taking appropriate steps to resolve the complaint.
