Congregation Beth El is a vibrant egalitarian Jewish community welcoming Jews of all denominations.

We serve the religious, educational, cultural and social needs of Jews in Potsdam-Canton and the North Country.

We emphasize understanding and celebration of Jewish liturgy and song, while striving to help congregants explore contemporary understanding of such Jewish values as tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tzedek (justice), g’milut hasadim (performing deeds of loving kindness), and shalom (peace or wholeness).
