Services. Tefilah and spirituality for the entire family.

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

Daily minyanim, 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. 


Daily Minyan

[Our daily services are currently canceled due to COVID, check calendar for updates


Come together with the Beth Am family daily Monday-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. When there are Jewish and national holidays observed, please check our main calendar to confirm if there is a minyan or not. Thank you.


Sunrise Minyan

[Our Sunrise Minyan services are currently canceled due to COVID, please check back.]

Wednesdays | 7:00 am (6:45 am when it falls on Rosh Hodesh)

Join us for our Sunrise Minyan as we wrap tefilin and worship together, centering ourselves on the sacred values of goodness, peace, and community. Stay afterwards and enjoy a coffee and a conversation with friends before you start the new day.

Shabbat Morning Service

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. Our synagogue strives to create a safe place for you to engage in a sacred dialogue with God and your soul.

Shabbat for Kids

[Our Shabbat programming for children are currently canceled due to COVID, please check back.]

Shabbat should be celebrated with the whole family. We offer babysitting so parents with young ones can relax and enjoy Shabbat, and special programs so children can enjoy how special Shabbat is from a very early age.

Then these are the 2 areas:


Shabbat Babysitting

Every Saturday from 9:30 – 11:30 am

Congregation Beth Am offers regular Shabbat morning babysitting to any family attending services. Whether you come regularly or are here for a special family event, you can relax and enjoy services knowing your little one is having fun and being well cared for.


Junior Congregation

For 1st – 3rd graders

Every Saturday from 10:30 – 11:30 am

At Junior Congregation, children will experience a meaningful Shabbat morning service. This engaging service includes tefilah (prayer), shira (songs), and Torah. Junior Congregation joins the main sanctuary service at 11:20 am to participate in concluding prayers, Kiddush and Motzi.
