Finding points of connection strengthens our community experience on Shabbat, on the High Holy Days and whenever our congregation comes together to celebrate, to comfort or to contemplate our past, present and future.

Please browse the links to our various community groups. Our staff is happy to help make connections or to start a new group if your interest is not yet represented. Making the effort will ensure that Beth Am becomes your home away from home -- the place where there's always a friend to sit with, the place where you belong. Welcome!

Jews are a people of memory.

Remembering that God rested on the seventh day requires people similarly to rest on Shabbat. Remembering the experience of slavery obligates us to care for those whom society neglects… involves fighting oppression in every generation.”

"What we love most about Beth Am is that it educates our youth to be strong and proud Jewish adults. We planned our legacy gift to Beth Am to ensure that this continues for generations to come!”
Please consider a donation to the Anida Hamburg Fund to support Beth Am's youth education programs.
During this meeting, we will hear an overview of the past year from Beth Am President Bruce Ives and our annual Treasurer's Report from Jay Hirsh. We will elect new and returning board members. The Annual Meeting is a great way to get to know the community, support our leaders and make your voice heard. Hope to see you there!
