What's New


Temple Beth Am Welcomes a New Cantor!

With great pleasure and anticipation we announce that Cantor Victor Geigner has agreed to be the first ordained cantor of Temple Beth Am. He will officially join us on August 1, 2016.

Cantor Victor is excited to build on Temple Beth Am's musical tradition. He brings a wealth of experience - and more importantly -- ruach (spirit) to our congregation. With the addition of Cantor Victor's voice, we're delighted that the indefinable spirit of music at Temple Beth Am will continue.

Click here for the full announcement, and stay tuned for more information regarding opportunities to meet Cantor Victor and for his installation in the fall.

Cultivate Deep Friendships in Israel
Lead by Rabbi Ruth A. Zlotnick
December 4 - 13, 2016

Together we hold a fascinating, diverse history at Temple Beth Am, which is enriched every day by the stories and experiences of our members. If you love our community's shared past, we are very excited to offer you a chance to touch Jewish history throughout our trip to Israel this December.

What did the pioneers of Kibbutzim dream about, and who were they? What are the rituals of daily life in the mystical city of Tsfat? Our group will uncover the answers to these questions and more on our journey.

You can find all of the stops on our itinerary, along with registration information on our Israel page, or our Arza World trip page. Stay tuned for weekly highlights of our Israel itinerary...
