Welcome to Temple Beth Am
During these most unusual times, our doors may be closed but our hearts are open to one and all.
TBA Online: We are delighted to be able to offer on line holiday and Shabbat Services, Torah study, and classes from Kindergarten through 12th grade, led by a team of dedicated and talented teachers. In recent weeks, we hosted a joyous bar mitzvah, a temple-wide seder and a very caring shiva. We are resilient and determined and our membership is hamische and involved.
Shabbat Services: Join us for Shabbat Services every Friday night, usually at 7:15 pm. If you are a Temple Beth Am member, you will receive a link for Zoom via email. Services are open to the public. If you are not a member, please call the temple office at 508-872-8300 to request a link to the service. We look forward to seeing you there! Our Oneg Shabbat will be full of smiling faces on your screen and the warmth of our community will shine through the virtual airwaves.

A message from TBA President Carol Hanover
In 1975, I walked into Temple Beth Am with 2 little kids in tow, and was welcomed into a wonderful and warm family. Then, as now, there is so much to discover at our temple:
- an exciting new curriculum for kids in kindergarten through high school
- fun-filled social events for adults and youth
- supportive and engaging clergy
- religious services filled with a genuine love of old and new Jewish traditions, music, singing, and spirit
- enrichment classes to fulfill every interest from Yiddish to Yoga, calculus to cooking
- weekly minyanim and Torah study
- and so much MORE!
I am proud to lead Temple Beth Am and ask that you join hands with me and our Board of Trustees, as we step forward into a bright future, fulfilling our tradition, from generation to generation.
