Congregation Beth Am is a community,
full of life and joy, because we celebrate every day as a gift. Our members are active participants in worship, programming, and education. We joyfully work together with a mind that is open to transforming the congregation, the community, and the world from the way they are to the way they need to be.
Our guiding philosophy since the day we opened our doors revolves around these core Jewish tenets:
- Celebrate life
- Value our Jewish heritage and traditions, balancing them with the needs of the modern world.
- Understand Judaism is more than a religion. It is a perspective of life that constantly reminds us of our special relationship with God, which is expressed through Godly living.
- Transform the world from the way it is to the way it should be through the process of mitzvot and Tikun Olam.
- Accept each other – Jewish and Non-Jewish – as reflections of God’s image, to be involved in the life of the congregation and treated with dignity.
