Welcome to Congregation Beth Ahm!

Formed in 1892, Congregation Beth Ahm was established to provide
opportunities to explore and practice Judaism in a warm and approachable
environment. We believe in the value of promoting an inviting, caring and
welcoming environment where we demonstrate compassion toward others
through derech eretz, tzedakah and tikkun olam.

Physically distant but Jewishly connected.
Looking forward to seeing you online.

Book Fair Presentation: Apeirogon
Tuesday, December 1 at 7:00pm
From Colum McCann, the National Book Award winner and best-selling author of Let the Great World Spin, comes an epic novel rooted in the unlikely real-life friendship between two fathers – Bassam Aramin, a Palestinian, and Rami Elhanan, an Israeli. They inhabit a world of conflict that colors every aspect of their lives, but when their lives are both upended by tragedy, they recognize the loss that connects them. Together they attempt to use their grief as a weapon for peace – and with one small act, start to permeate what has for generations seemed an impermeable conflict.  This presentation, co-sponsored by the Beth Ahm Sisterhood, is part of the JCC Jewish Book Fair.  Click here for more information about viewing the presentation and purchasing the book.
 
 
Food for Thought: Gratitude, Mindfulness, and Blessing Our Food
Tuesdays, December 1, 8, and 15 at noon
Everyone is invited to join Rabbi Rubenstein for a lunch & learn series utilizing the Food for Thought curriculum developed by Hazon.  How has Jewish tradition understood gratitude?  Why is it important to develop a sense of gratitude and how might we do so today?  We’ll explore how habits can obscure our awareness of daily miracles, and how blessings can re-awaken our sense of mindfulness and open our eyes to the world.  Free and open to the community.  Click here to register and a Zoom link will be emailed to you.
