Small Groups: Beth Am B'Yachad (Together)

Why B’Yachad Groups?


Beth Am B’Yachad Groups are an expression of the Vision, Mission, and Values of Temple Beth Am. Through these Small Groups, we seek to deepen relationships and create powerful Jewish experiences. Within each group, we strive to balance the core values that enable us to see each other as individuals, to learn, and to engage.

What are B’Yachad Groups? 

Beth Am B’Yachad groups are Minyans of Meaning, which can foster a greater sense of belonging as well as help each member find their place within our synagogue community. Small Groups are:

  • Intentional groups of 8-15 people, who get together to learn, eat, pray, have fun, volunteer, and/or just be together in community
  • Led by a Beth Am member(s)
  • Organized by passions, geography, demography, or a combination of such
  • Meet a set number of times over a set period of time

Expectations of Members of B’Yachad Groups

  • Agree to and observe a brit (covenant) with each other (please read brit here)
  • Commit to attending all of the scheduled meetings (except for illness or emergency)
  • Be “present” for each other to support creating meaningful relationships
  • Include all members of the group in meaningful discussions of the materials provided
  • Have fun and look for joyful opportunities
