BEW is a place for the women of Peninsula Temple Beth El to connect, have fun, grow and contribute.


Thank you for your  interest in Beth El Women (BEW). We would love to have you join us! We are a dynamic group of women of all ages and stages, who engage in a variety of programming and support to the PTBE community and beyond, while creating meaningful and engaging relationships with each other. You never know who you are going to meet or what you are going to do at the BEW table, but a fun time is guaranteed. Pull up a chair and join us for cooking, hiking, mah jong, theater, social action, speakers, Havdalah, Seder, and more. We look forward to seeing you soon. BEW grows stronger with your involvement and participation!
