Congregation Beth El
The Children of Beth El

Last Updated Sunday, February 23, 2014

Congregation Beth El, Camden's first Conservative synagogue, built and occupied a wonderful synagogue and school building on Park Boulevard, opposite Farnham Park, in the 1920s which it occupied until 1968, when the new building on Chapel Avenue in Cherry Hill was occupied.

In March of 2006 I received a package of information from Rabbi David Herman, the son of Cantor Louis Herman, whose voice for many years inspired the faithful at prayer, and Mrs. Yetta Herman, who was involved for many years in Jewish education at Beth El. Besides David's own story of people and events at Beth El and in Parkside, there were copies of the 80-plus pages of Beth El's history through 1970. He also furnished me with two lists of names, from around 1971 or so, one being the names of members of the Beth El Sisterhood, and the on on this page, of all the children and teenagers who were members of the congregation at that time. Even though by that time Beth El had left Camden, many of the names on these lists had and have ties to Camden.

What struck me is that I'm on that list, along with my brother Mark and sister Hilary, and that so many boys and girls I went to school and socialized with are on it. I thought it would be fun to put both lists on the web site, just to see who find it. 

With that in mind, if you find yourself on this page, e-mail me!

In August of 2006 I received the news that the synagogue on Chapel Avenue in Cherry Hill was sold and will be coming down to make way for condominiums. Who would have thought in 1968 that the new building would be gone in less time than the old Beth El? I guess that's the nature of things.

I also received a happier letter, from Beverly Dezenhall Hersh, asking me if I was adding to the list of Beth El's children. I thought to myself that there will be 36-odd years worth of Beth El children who will remember the Cherry Hill building as fondly as I remember the Camden one.... they deserve a list of their own. With that in mind, you will find below a new list, which I invite one and all to add to, of children who first came to Beth El from 1970 through today. It will be interesting, as I am sure that there are some families that have been affiliated with Beth El since the synagogue's founding in the 1920s.
