Welcome to The Hearth!

Hearth Groups are lay-led gatherings where people who share common interests come together to deepen their connections to Judaism and our Temple Beth Am community. They foster the intentional building of relationships, using Jewish experiences as inspiration for meaningful interaction and personal transformation. Group members make a commitment to the group and are jointly responsible for the group’s success. Anyone—regardless of their level of Jewish knowledge or experience—can be a group leader. Above all, these groups are a venue to connect, share stories and passions, and see and hear each other more deeply. Each group is organized around a specific topic or interest and will meet for five to eight sessions. We have a variety of groups in each of the three houses of Temple Beth Am: Beit K'hilah (community), Beit T'filah (spirituality), and Beit Midrash (learning).  

The current cohort of Hearth Groups are all full at this time, but we look forward to launching our next cohort in late Spring. If you are interested in leading a group, please reach out to Sam Rosen ( We would love to include you as a leader!  No experience necessary.  Just bring your willingness to connect and a passion that you’d like to share with others.  We’ll supply the rest.
