How do you do Jewish? Are you a secular Jew who wants to share Jewish culture and identity with your family? Do you celebrate Jewish holidays and want to know more about how to celebrate them without the supernatural underpinnings?
Beth Ami provides a place where secular Jews can find a comfortable home. We appeal to those who respect and love our Jewish heritage and want to affiliate with others with similar viewpoints. We are Jews who want Jewish studies for our children and ourselves, who want to observe Jewish holidays, appreciate Jewish culture, and express a connection with the Jewish people and Israel in a non-theistic setting.
Beth Ami is a warm, welcoming community that gathers to deepen our connections to each other as well as embrace our shared Humanistic Jewish identity. We celebrate major holidays, Shabbat/Havdalah, and life cycle events, including baby namings, bar/bat mitzvahs, weddings and memorial services.

After our brief Beth Ami Havdalah service, let’s have some fun with Haikus for Jews, like this one: “One of us must be/the designated drinker-/Jewish carousing.” Write your own, maybe something fittingly political, or google those by David Bader. Here’s one for the season: “Candles in a row/spinning tops, oily pancakes/My cholesterol!” - SM We’ll usher out Shabbat with smiles and friendship. If you like, have some wine to drink, spices to smell and a candle to light and douse along with us.
Havdalah is the end of Shabbat. It is the welcoming in and preparing for the new week and most of all, it is a nice excuse for Humanistic Jews to get together and schmooze.
