Beth Am is motivated by Jewish values, such as feeding the hungry, visiting the sick and clothing the naked, and strives to ensure that social justice is infused into all aspects of Beth Am life.

Our congregation has relationships with many local nonprofit organizations, including Community Services Agency, Life Moves, Village Harvest and Second Harvest. Throughout the year, there are many opportunities to partner for social justice work as well as learn through educational programs on a host of social justice issues and themes.

If you have any thoughts, suggestions or leads, please be in touch with Rabbi Jonathan Prosnit or Micaela Hellman-Tincher.
