Asking questions. Seeking answers. It’s at the heart of what we do around here! This is what we’re asked most often…

Where is The Soul Center located?
You will find us at Beth El Congregation at 8101 Park Heights Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21208. Enter the Beth El campus from Park Heights Avenue, follow the driveway when it curves to the right and behind the sprawling building. You will see our clearly marked glass door, just beyond a covered walkway near the far end of the building.

Is The Soul Center just for Beth El congregants?
Nope. The Soul Center is here to serve the entire Baltimore Jewish community. You don’t need to belong to Beth El or any synagogue or be Jewishly affiliated in any way. Not Jewish but still interested? Of course, you’re welcome here.

Do I need to be religious or believe in God to fit in?
Our Soul Center community is highly diverse. The majority of our participants describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious” but, truly, The Soul Center serves people from every aspect of Baltimore Jewish life.

What does it cost to attend a program?
Many of our programs are free or very low cost. When you explore our site to view our programs or calendar, any program with associated cost will be clearly marked.

I attended a free program yet would love to make a contribution. What’s the best way?

Do I have to join The Soul Center to participate?
At this time we do not have a membership program. Just show up and you’re automatically part of our Soul Center community.

Do I have to register for programs in advance?
Many of our programs are designed to accommodate drop-ins, although it is always helpful for us to know in advance how many participants to expect. Other programs, like those that feature guests speakers, book authors, or off-campus adventures, tend to have limited capacity and fill up fast so it’s always wise to register.

Does The Soul Center have a newsletter?
Yes, we send out a monthly email to let subscribers know what’s happening in the month ahead. We also occasionally reach out about featured events via email. If you’d like to get on our email list, simply fill out the “Let’s Connect” section at the bottom of our website. We promise to not overwhelm your in-box or share your contact info.

I have a great idea for a program I’d like to facilitate or attend; who should I contact?
