 Information  for Guests

At this holiest of seasons, we take special pleasure in welcoming visitors to our congregation as we join together in worship. To insure peace of mind and enable each of us to greet others warmly, we require name tags for all who wish to attend.

College students and military personnel may obtain free name tags by pre-registering and showing proper photo identification when signing in.

Out-of-town visitors who are members in good standing in other URJ congregations may also receive name tags as a courtesy. The completed URJ courtesy request form may be faxed to us at (865) 525-6030.

Other non-members may also receive name tags by registering and showing proper photo identification.

A donation of $75 per person (out-of -town visitors and other non-members) is suggested. Please send your check and request to Temple Beth El, PO Box 10325, Knoxvile, TN 37939-0325.
Credit card payments can be made by phoning the Temple Office: (865) 524-3521.

Name tags will be available for pick up at the registration tables.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. We look forward to seeing you.
