As an affiliate of the Women of Reform Judaism, Beth Am Women helps to ensure the future of progressive Judaism around the world with initiatives that serve our community and the ideals of the Jewish people.

Our activities include programs that bring us together to learn about ourselves, each other and Torah; to practice our traditions and create new ones; to support congregational activities; and to initiate and support tzedakah projects. We offer many regularly scheduled activities, including a book discussion group, cooking classes, monthly Rosh Chodesh celebrations, and much more. For upcoming programs, view the BAW Calendar or sign up to receive the BAW Cyberletter.

And we’re always ready to try new activities. To share a suggestion, or to learn more about Beth Am Women, check out our Resources box (at the bottom right corner of this page) or email

Every year I think that this year I will celebrate the holiday of Sukkot. But every year with the High Holy Days, school starting, etc., I never get to building the sukkah or finding the lulav and the etrog. This year I decided to research the holiday, to find the essence and see what elements I could observe. I read that the holiday is an agricultural festival, a thanksgiving for the summer harvest. Later it became one of the pilgrimage festivals (along with Passover and Shavuot) and took on historical significance by being associated with the forty years wandering in the desert.
