Welcome to Beth Am, where we strive to be, in Isaiah’s words, “a house of prayer for all peoples”. Our nearly 500 household memberships come from a wide range of backgrounds. Beth Am’s warm, child-friendly community and its pluralistic outlook make it a place so comfortable that many members say it “feels like home”. The congregation has long appreciated diversity of all kinds, including our openness to interfaith families, same sex couples and those who identify as part of the LGBT community.

Located in the historic Reservoir Hill neighborhood of Baltimore City, we are an urban, egalitarian congregation affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. Our congregation balances traditional prayer and learning with innovative and intellectual critique. We invite you to learn more about us here, or better yet…join us for services or a program.
