As an affiliate of the Women of Reform Judaism, Beth Am Women helps to ensure the future of progressive Judaism around the world with initiatives that serve our community and the ideals of the Jewish people.

Our activities include programs that bring us together to learn about ourselves, each other and Torah; to practice our traditions and create new ones; to support congregational activities; and to initiate and support tzedakah projects. We offer many regularly scheduled activities, including a book discussion group, cooking classes, monthly Rosh Chodesh celebrations, and much more. For upcoming programs, view the BAW Calendar or sign up to receive the BAW Cyberletter.

And we’re always ready to try new activities. To share a suggestion, or to learn more about Beth Am Women, check out our Resources box (at the bottom right corner of this page) or email bawinfo@betham.org.

During the height of the Civil Rights era, Dr. Martin Luther King led a march from Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery, Alabama. One of the people who participated in that march was Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel. When Rabbi Heschel returned from Selma, he was asked by someone, ‘Did you find much time to pray, when you were in Selma?’ Rabbi Heschel responded, ‘I prayed with my feet.’ What was his point? That his marching, his protesting, his speaking out for Civil Rights was his greatest prayer of all.
