Prospective Membership

At Congregation Beth Am or “House of the People” we build our foundation upon Torah and the diversity of all the individuals that enter our sanctuary.  It’s through this combination that we find our greatest strength, coming together to deepen our Jewish values.  Every member of Beth Am is cherished for who they are.  Each person brings their own uniqueness to help us build a powerful vision of our Jewish community.  Multi-generational families, LGBT couples and individuals, interfaith families and Jews by choice all joining forces to breath life to our Torah and enrich each other’s lives.

Long lasting relationships and deep commitments are formed here. It’s easy to do when you’re working with friends for a common goal of Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World).  Beth Am is true community of supportive people inspired to help each other and transform the way we experience Jewish life. Each of us is encouraged to be open to all of our possibilities through Jewish learning, prayer and community. 

Contemplative moments, spirited discussions, fun filled holiday celebrations its all here taking place at Beth Am!  You’ll always find a warm welcome and caring community as you make Beth Am your Jewish Home.  

If you are looking for a community of warm and caring people, and a place to learn about and practice Reform Judaism, you’ve found it at Congregation Beth Am.  Our mission is to motivate and empower our congregation to live our lives Jewishly.  We invite you to check the Web site Calendar for upcoming Shabbat services or other programs and to drop in at your convenience.

Dues concessions are available so that no one is ever turned away from joining our congregation for inability to pay full dues.
