Worship

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). Our worship services are musical, participatory and informal in spirit; they focus on helping us experience the spiritual renewal, peace, joy and sense of celebration that Shabbat can bring. Services usually include a teaching or sermon by our clergy, congregants or a guest scholar. Rabbi Janet Marder will speak.
