Prayer is a language that each of us speaks and hears in a different way. When we pray together, we try to find meaning within the chorus of diverse voices. With their engaging sermons and stimulating teachings, our Rabbis show us how the lessons from the past are relevant to our lives today.
Through a wide range of truly meaningful spiritual experiences, we offer something for everyone: a variety of weekly Friday night and Saturday morning Shabbat services, and a year full of enriching holiday celebrations. We also look forward to commemorating life cycle events, such as births and marriages, with you.
Our services are fully egalitarian: men and women participate equally. We believe we have found a healthy balance between the traditional and the creative in our celebration and our worship.
Temple Beth Am is fully wheelchair accessible, and Shabbat shammesim (service helpers) are knowledgeable in creating welcoming spaces for congregants and visitors in wheelchairs, can provide large-script prayer books to those with vision needs, and welcome members with all disabilities.
Temple Beth Am provides free assisted-hearing devices and interpreted services for the deaf and hard-of-hearing during the High Holy Days and other holidays.
