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!

Before and after our Friday evening Shabbat services each week, members of the Rabbi Search Committee will be available to meet with you. Look for their yellow name tags.
