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.

Please stay tuned for more information regarding opportunities to meet Cantor Victor and for his installation in the fall.

We have a wonderful new way to celebrate Shabbat: sponsor an oneg (before or after evening services) in honor of a person or occasion, or in memory of a loved one.
Sponsorship costs only $100. Your name and the name of the honoree will be mentioned at the Shabbat service for the oneg you are sponsoring.
