Temple Beth Am offers multiple worship opportunities for members and visitors.
Do a mitzvah by attending Temple Beth Am's daily morning and evening minyanim, led by a group of dedicated lay people. If you are saying kaddish after the death of a loved one, observing a yahrzeit, or if you want to begin or end your workday with a moment of communal warmth and spiritual reflection, this is the place for you.
Morning Minyan meets Monday – Friday at 7:30 a.m., Sunday & Federal holidays at 8:00 a.m.

Neshama Minyan meets every Friday for a lively Kabbalat Shabbat/Ma'ariv service using the melodies of the late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Congregants sing, dance and welcome Shabbat with much joy and spirit.
Sovev is the transcendent aspect of the Divine, that which surrounds everything we're always swimming in, existing in. Shabbat Sovev is an attempt to mimic and access that immersion. We daven in a circle, creating a space to tap into the transcendent nature of the divine, to transcend ourselves, the prayer we could do on our own, the prayer that we could do with just words, or the normal nusach.

Conclude Shabbat in a warm setting that includes worship, study, schmoozing and - of course - food! The Minha/Maariv Services are lay-led, under the guidance of our Rabbis and Rabbinic Interns. The rabbis teach Torah during the traditional Seudah Shlishit (3rd Shabbat meal). A spiritual Havdallah follows. Minha/Ma'ariv begins approx. 90 minutes before the end of Shabbat.
