We are a diverse, multigenerational Reform community with a dynamic approach to Judaism.

Why Beth Emet?

When we asked members recently to characterize Beth Emet, here is what they said: Beth Emet is welcoming, friendly, warm, energetic, and liberal. At Beth Emet you become engaged in a community comprised of clergy, staff, and congregants who will enrich your life with greater meaning. Whether you are new to the area, seeking change, curious about Judaism, or ready to strengthen your spirituality, we will meet you where you are and help facilitate your exploration.

We are eager to meet you! You may be curious about our worship style, are interested in classes for children and/or yourself, maybe you are seeking personal connections, or you would like to get involved in a volunteer project. We invite you to tour our synagogue, attend a worship service, sign up for a class - it's the best way to get to know us and ensure it's the right fit for you.  If you have any questions whatesover, please do not hesitate to contact our Executive Director, Bekki Harris Kaplan, as we are happy to answer any and all questions.
