Beth Am means home to me, as it did for my parents who helped found Beth Am, and for my children — as I hope it will for my grandchildren. L’dor va-dor – from generation to generation. — Linda Kurz
Find out what other congregants have to say about Beth Am.
Beth Am is a warm and friendly congregation. Our members form deep, long-lasting friendships, enrich their lives through shared learning, celebrate joyous occasions together and support one another in times of need. Beth Am members come from diverse backgrounds and family configurations, and everyone is welcome, including single adults, intermarried couples, multi-ethnic, LGBT and single-parent families.
Life-long learning, spiritual growth and service to others are at the heart of our community. Our congregation is at the forefront of the Reform movement in offering a rich variety of educational opportunities – not only for children, but for families to study together and for adult learning at many levels. Our worship and learning are focused on helping all members to deepen their exploration of Judaism and connect personally to the tradition. We come together, above all, for the sake of tikkun olam – working to repair the world through acts of compassion and justice.
Get to know us by attending Shabbat or holiday services, taking a class, trying out our free monthly films or any activity that interests you.
