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.

 

Please join us to experience Congregation Beth Ahm at one of

Exploring Jewish Identity through Creative Writing - March 10, April 7, and May 5
Jewish identity and heritage are not easily articulated, but the tactile rituals of our faith lend themselves to vivid writing and identity exploration. Author and Writing Coach Lynne Golodner invites women to come together around Rosh Hodesh, the new Jewish month which is typically associated with gatherings of women and a poetic connection with the moon. We will write to prompts about symbolism, faith and Jewish identity, and discuss inspiring readings that relate to the prompts.  These writing workshops will happen monthly on the Sunday closest to Rosh Hodesh. It’s free to attend and open to any woman in the Detroit Jewish community. Advance registration is required.  Click here to register for the series or individual sessions.  Participants do not need any prior writing experience to participate – just a desire to explore topics of Jewish identity and engage in meaningful conversation with other Jewish women. 
 
Bet Midrash Shabbat: Praying for the Sick
Saturday, March 9 at 11:00am
The MiSheberakh prayer is a standard part of services at Beth Ahm and one to which many people feel deeply attached.  Join us in our Bet Midrash as we explore the nature of the MiSheberakh and questions such as:  What does saying a MiSheberakh do?  How does it help?  How long should a person remain on the MiSheberakh list?  Should we say a MiSheberakh for people who are terminally-ill?  Morning services will begin at 9:00am with Bet Midrash learning at approximately 11:00am.  Everyone is invited for lunch at noon.
 
Walking Toward Shabbat
Friday, March 15 at 10:30am
