The Cycle of Life: Finding Strength in Community

The Cycle of Life: Finding Strength in Community



As Jews, we are blessed with rituals and traditions that can sustain us on life’s journey, enriching our celebrations and providing comfort during our times of sorrow. We do not have to make this journey alone. Strength comes from knowing we are part of a warm, inclusive community whose members help to care for one another.

Here at Beth Am, our clergy devote themselves to making personal connections with our members and lending support at the most joyous and the most challenging moments in life. Our rabbis and cantor develop one-to-one relationships with families, children and teens as they prepare for Bar/Bat Mitzvah and Confirmation; they work with engaged couples and parents who are welcoming a new child; visit those who are ill, both at home and in the hospital; and counsel the bereaved. They also take time to listen and help our members explore the emotional and spiritual impact of life changes.

Coping with parenthood, family life, aging and loss can be stressful, but the friendship and comfort of a synagogue community can help us make the most of life’s journey and find personal meaning along the way.
