Beth Am's group for women (BAW) works to build a warm, welcoming and inclusive community for women at Congregation Beth Am. Join today to build deep relationships, find meaning in Jewish traditions and have a positive impact on our congregation and our community.

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 social action projects. We offer many regularly scheduled activities, including a book discussion group, cooking classes, monthly Rosh Chodesh celebrations, and much more.

Be in touch with us! And we’re always ready to try new activities. To share a suggestion, or to learn more about Beth Am Women, email bawinfo@betham.org or the listed contact in the logged-in-only accessible section at the bottom of this page. To see who serves on the Beth Am Women board, please see the board listing page.

Beth Am Women Groups:

Book Lovers Group
Mah Jongg
Rosh Chodesh
Social Justice

Book Lovers Group was formally the Beth Am Women Book Group. Any new women who would like to join us!

Mah Jongg:
Whether you're a beginner or are a master with the tiles, join the fun as Beth Am Women play Mah Jongg!

  • Virtual Meetings: Participants meet on Zoom and break into groups of 3 or 4 to play on the online app Real Mah Jongg. We get to see each other, chat and play. (Next best thing to being at a real table together.)
  • In-Person Meetings: Interested in learning how to play Mah Jongg? 

    Interested in playing in person? Beginners to advanced players, play Mah Jongg after our in-person lunches.

Rosh Chodesh: Participate in a fun, creative and dynamic celebration just for women each month at the appearance of the new moon. The Jewish calendar provides a wonderful way to celebrate the cycles of time and change on Rosh Chodesh, the first (and sometimes second) day of each Hebrew month. Rosh Chodesh events at Beth Am are relevant to each month's Jewish themes, incorporate the arts in all forms, and encourage learning, discussion and personal stories in an atmosphere of mutual respect and friendship.

Social Justice: Inspired by Jewish traditions and values, Beth Am Women takes pride in working to repair the world and pursue justice. We collaborate with Beth Am social justice initiatives, Women of Reform Judaism, the Religious Action Center, as well as other community and faith-based organizations. Join us and participate in community service projects, advocacy and social action for women, children and families!
