Worship

Every Shabbat morning, a large and enthusiastic group comes together for Torah study in the Beit Kehillah, on the lower campus. Rabbi Janet Marder teaches this class, which focuses on a thoughtful reading of the entire Torah, exploring the historical, ethical and spiritual questions raised by the text. We explore Torah on three levels: What meaning did it hold in its original ancient Near East setting? How have our sages and commentators understood the text over the centuries? What personal and communal meaning does it hold for us today? Every session offers learning, lively interchange and ample opportunity for questions and discussion. People of all levels and backgrounds are welcome, and Hebrew knowledge is not required. Come at 8:30 for bagels, coffee and friendly conversation. Past Torah Study session audio recordings are available online.
Experience the joy of Shabbat on Saturday morning with a community of friends. The Torah Minyan, led by Beth Am clergy, meets most Saturday mornings for worship that includes a lively, participatory discussion of the weekly Torah portion.
The Beth Am community gathers each Friday night at 6:15 PM to welcome Shabbat (come at 6:00 PM to enjoy snacks and hors d’oeuvres).
