PROTEST? German Americans Outraged By Temple Beth El Boca Raton

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 12.44.09 PMBOCA RATON, FL ( — first reported on the controversy created by Boca Raton’s Temple Beth El through its email blast promoting a service titled “So you bought a German car…the road to forgiveness.” We told you that area car dealerships may reconsider their sponsorship of Jewish Federation charities and Temple Beth El events.

Now comes word that a protest may be in the early planning stages for the Temple Beth El event, scheduled for 7:30pm next Saturday at Beth El’s main campus — 333 SW 4th Avenue.

Potential protestors say they are upset that Temple Beth El is “tone deaf” to the community.

“How can a synagogue seriously promote an anti-German event?” asked one Boca resident considering the protest. “Who at Beth El thinks this it’s okay to suggest owners of German cars need to be forgiven?”
