What we're about

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.

Our Sukkot Holiday Happening on Sat. Oct. [masked]pm will be at the Fiske Planetarium on the CU Boulder Campus. The Beth Ami community is celebrating the “harvest” of the telescope.

Buy your tickets on line https://www.colorado.edu/fiske/showtimes Beth Ami Holiday Happenings are targeted to families with children 18 years and younger but everyone interested is welcomed. As Humanistic Jews we celebrates human ingenuity. Millions of unknown experimenters and inventors painfully struggled to farm overcoming obstacles of poor soil and drought. Rabbi Wine, founder of Humanistic Judaism, envisioned a humanistic Sukkot as “a tribute to human culture, agricultural, pastoral, and urban. There are many ‘harvests,’ all human, all artificial, all significant. The space ship is the natural brother of the plow.”
