Small Groups: Beth Am B'Yachad (together)

Beth Am B’Yachad Groups are an expression of the Vision, Mission and Values of Temple Beth Am. Through Small Groups, we seek to deepen relationships and create powerful Jewish experiences. Within each group, we strive to balance the core values that enable us to see each other as individuals, to learn, and to engage.

Beth Am B’Yachad groups are Minyans of Meaning, which can foster a greater sense of belonging as well as help each member find their place within our synagogue community. Small Groups are:

  • Intentional groups of 8-15 people, who get together to learn, eat, pray, have fun, volunteer, and/or just be together in community
  • Led by a Beth Am member(s)
  • Organized by passions, geography, demography, or a combination of such
  • Meet a set number of times over a set period of time

Please email [email protected] with any quesitons or if a group you would like to be in has filled up, contact her to get on the waitlist.
