Our members reach out to comfort each other during times of illness and mourning, and we celebrate together in times of joy. We also consistently reassure our oldest members, many of whom are no longer able to travel to Beth Am, that they are not forgotten.
To do that we actively engage individuals and families by helping connect them with each other, with their synagogue community, and with the teachings and values of Jewish tradition. This has proven to be an enriching experience for our members.
