We are a synagogue full of life and joy.

Congregation Beth Am is one of Central Florida’s most established conservative synagogues.  Since our founding in 1975, we have been welcoming members and non-members alike, having earned the reputation of “The Friendliest Congregation in Central Florida”. 

Our founding families created Congregation Beth Am as an alternative to other conservative synagogues in Central Florida, wanting to create a spiritual home for the people.  They felt it was important for everyone to be recognized as a part of the congregation and celebrated for enriching our shul.

Since our founding, we have had more than 500 weddings, 3000 B’nai mitzvahs, 700 namings, and consumed more challah than we can keep track of.  We are good at celebrations and people like it here.

For many years Congregation Beth Am did not have a rabbi, which was originally was by design.  The founding families believed in education.   Congregational lay leaders took turns leading services because they recognized the importance of understanding what it means to be Jewish.  Over time, Congregation Beth Am’s lay leadership became recognized as some of the most educated non-rabbinic scholars in Central Florida, a tradition that continues today. 

For decades Congregation Beth Am’s lay leadership has continued in their scholarly journey, inspiring the next generation of leaders to come forward and take their place at the bima.  In the true spirit of who we are, lay leadership is open to everyone who has the desire to learn.

Over the years, the congregation has hired rabbis to help spiritually guide and educate, with our lay leadership providing support as needed.  We believe we are stronger together.

Congregation Beth Am is about the people.

Congregation Beth Am is more than a place where we conduct religious services.

We celebrate together, grow together, and mourn together.  We are a congregation of thinkers and doers, focusing on Tikkun Olam, healing the world for us and the generations to come.
