Beth Emet is a diverse, multigenerational Reform community with a dynamic approach to Judaism. Our congregation seeks to create a spiritually vibrant, socially conscious, intellectually challenging, and deeply caring environment firmly rooted in Jewish tradition and values.

Beth Emet is a spiritual home that acknowledges and celebrates our diverse community. It welcomes individuals, couples, and families who are seeking a gay-friendly space for worship, study, and fellowship. Beth Emet congregants have formed the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Questioning (LGBTQ) Outreach & Social Group to help all LGBTQ individuals strengthen their connection to Judaism through support, advocacy, education, and social interactions.

The presence of an LGBTQ group also serves to raise awareness and to educate the general Beth Emet congregation. Throughout the year the LGBTQ Group provides a series of informative and entertaining discussions, lectures, and seminars that are open to the entire Beth Emet community.

For more information, or to become a member of the LGBTQ Outreach & Social Group, please contact Executive Director, Bekki Harris Kaplan, who can connect you with the group.
