Beth Am Congregation’s historic synagogue located in the
heart of Reservoir Hill is turning 100 years old! Come celebrate with a series
of events to mark the milestone!
The century-old synagogue was first home to Chizuk Amuno
Congregation, which moved permanently to Pikesville in 1974. At that time, a
number of individuals chose to preserve the majestic building and Beth Am was
founded with a commitment to remain in Baltimore City. Today Beth Am is a
vibrant, urban, egalitarian congregation.
We will be hosting a series of programs honoring the legacy of our historic building.
