Services

Prayer, holiday celebration, and spiritual fulfillment are a key focal point at Beth Am. Our Congregation offers an array of services and worship opportunities.

Daily Minyans, weekly Shabbats, High Holy Days, traditional observances, musical gatherings or Torah study. No matter what you’re looking for – joy, devotion, self-reflection, renewal – you’ll find it. See the event calendar.

Summer Minyan (June 1 - August 31)
Monday- Thursday @ 6:00 pm – Beit Midrash
Sunday @ 9:15 am – Sanctuary

During the summer, we have a harder time getting a quorum, so please help us.

Come together with the Beth Am family daily from Monday to Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings, enabling those who are mourning or observing a Yahrzeit to recite the Kaddish prayer, which can only be done in the presence of a quorum (ten or more adults over the age of Bar/Bat Mitzvah). Your presence, therefore, honors both the deceased and the living. During the summer, the Minyan times change, so please check the calendar

We are blessed with a very active laity who lead us in prayer and read our sacred story for us. (Please let us know if you would like to join this group.) In addition, Rabbi Kornberg and Rabbi Earne offer lively discussions and insights that bring our Torah to life. Join us. We would love to have your voice(s) enhance our prayers and discussions.
