Erev Shabbat Service With Guest Speaker Pastor Kaloma Smith

Friday, May 14, 2021 3 Sivan 5781

6:15 PM - 7:30

Beth Am Welcomes Pastor Kaloma Smith of University AME in Palo Alto

Born in Jamaica and raised in Mt. Vernon, New York, Pastor Kaloma Smith developed a genuine heart for people while serving in several ministerial positions. At Greater Centennial Church in Mt. Vernon, he led the young adult, family life, men and communications ministries. He also served as Westchester District Chairperson for Young Adults in Christian Ministry, was instrumental in church growth at Foster AME Zion Church, and built vital facilities for Dixon AME Zion Church.

While actively involved in ministry, Pastor Smith enjoyed award winning success as the Senior Managing Director of Home Theatre of Long Island. At the apex of a promising corporate career anchored by bold, innovative leadership and marked with a track record of excellence, his spiritual father, Bishop W. Darin Moore, handpicked him to lead the nearly one-hundred-year-old University African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church in Palo Alto, California. Ordained in the summer of 2013, Pastor Smith embarked on a journey to use his God given gifts to build a healthy, energized church community.

Each week, please join a livestream of our Friday night service. We encourage you to watch from home at or on our YouTube channel or on the Beth Am Facebook page, starting at 6:15 PM. If you miss the 6:15 PM livestream (or a later time works better for you), a simulated broadcast of the service will repeat at 8:00 PM on

You may follow along in our texts for the Erev (evening) Shabbat service using the online version of the Mishkan T'filah: A Reform Siddur.
