BAYITT – 20s & 30s

BAYITT – 20s & 30s

Beth Am’s Young Adult Community

BAYITT is a group of fun, progressive, smart, down-to-earth Jewish singles and couples in their 20’s and 30’s who want to create a friendly, urban Jewish community in Baltimore. We come together for Shabbat dinners, small learning circles,  social justice activities, volunteer opportunities, and for educational programs – and of course to eat, drink, and talk. Events center in Baltimore’s Reservoir Hill neighborhood (home to Beth Am) and throughout the downtown area. 

Past events have included movie nights, summertime chill and grill, Torah on Tap (in partnership with Moishe House) bike rides, holiday meals, group dinners, volunteer projects and more.

If you are 21–39, friendly, welcoming, and interested in meeting other Beth Am members or just shul shopping…. this is the group for you — we can’t wait to meet you!

For more information, or if you’d like to get involved with planning programs, contact Asella Medina-Smith or Rabbi Tyler Dratch.
