Located in Seattle’s North End,
we are a Reform synagogue committed to helping Jews and their loved ones build a joyful, spiritual, caring, and egalitarian community.
TBA welcomes the entire spectrum of our Jewish community: people of all ages, races, and abilities; interfaith families; and people who are single, partnered, straight, gay, lesbian, and transgender. As a vibrant center of learning, we enable each member to reflect the holy.
Voted "Best Adult Education Program" and "Best Jewish Supplemental School" by the readers of JTNews.
Join with your friends to welcome Rabbi Ruth Zlotnick, our new Senior Rabbi, to our Temple Beth Am community.
Starting with Shabbat services this summer, we will have a variety of services, events, and small intimate gatherings that will allow you to gather with our congregation in this exciting time of Temple life. (See below for just one example.) Friday evening services through September will be co-hosted by some of our committees and special groups. On September 5, the oneg will be co-hosted by Seattle Jewish Seniors.

We invite you to welcome Rabbi Ruth Zlotnick as our new Senior Rabbi by joining her, and connecting with other Temple Beth Am members, in intimate gatherings at congregants’ homes in and around Seattle.
While you will have many opportunities to see her at TBA throughout the year, Rabbi Ruth is eager to meet each of you in smaller settings; during each house party she will also facilitate a discussion about what we want Temple Beth Am to be. This is a great way to spend quality, casual time with Rabbi Ruth and your fellow congregants outside of TBA.
