Welcome to Temple Beth El

TBE Hurricane Ian Update

How We’re Helping:

The past days have been spent determining the needs in our TBE community and coordinating with our local and national partners in recovery work.

Temple Beth El and the Learning Tree opened the Dubin Center to offer childcare to Lee County elementary school children whose schools are closed because of Hurricane Ian. We had 30 children in the Dubin Center playing legos, doing puzzles, crafting and playing ping-pong. Thank you to all our TBE volunteers for helping make this happen!

We have 16 TBE congregants whose homes are currently unlivable. Rabbi Luna has been in contact with each one and is distributing funds to those in need from the Rabbinic Discretionary Fund.

We are fortunate to have an active and involved local Jewish Federation led by TBE member Debbie Sanford. The Jewish Federation food pantry has been serving all those in the local community. Please consider a donation to the Jewish Federation food pantry so the Jewish community can continue doing this vital work.    Click Here

Temple Beth El is partnering with Temple Shalom in Naples, Bat Yam Temple on Sanibel, the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island and Naples Jewish Congregation to coordinate relief efforts in the area. Please click here for information about joining this important collaborative recovery effort.

The Learning Tree outdoor classrooms were destroyed and the playground was damaged in the hurricane. The Rainbow of Hope project has generously already replaced many of the items. Amy Amon, Learning Tree director is adding to an Amazon wish list. Please check back here as items are added: Click Here 

If you need help:
Please contact Rabbi Luna for financial assistance with house repairs, replacing items, food, meals, etc.

We have put together a resource page on what steps to take and who to contact click here.  

The Jewish Federation food pantry is open Tuesday-Thursday from 9:00am-3:00pm and has financial assistance and gift cards available.

Together, we will fulfill the vision of Isaiah:
They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations…and you will be called ‘priests of the Eternal’ and named ‘servants of our God.’ (Isaiah 61:4-6)


We look forward to seeing you!
