Who We Are

When asked to describe our community I am usually drawn to words like dynamic, vibrant, inclusive, spiritual, and connected. ~Rabbi David Ackerman

We at Beth Am Israel (BAI), a sacred community of seekers and learners, focus on experiencing Judaism as a meaningful and relevant practice in everyday life.

We celebrate a pluralistic approach to Judaism that is committed to tradition, innovation, inclusion, and activism. Together we aspire to build a home where all members can personally explore their Jewish paths through thoughtful, joyful and socially responsible study, prayer and service.

Strong relationships form the core of the BAI community. For many members, BAI is where they have found their closest circle of friends. Inside our thoughtful, intelligent, caring community we recognize the importance of supporting each other in the ups and downs of life.

Together, we commit to bringing meaning to our Jewish practice and celebrating the meaning that Judaism brings to our lives.
