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.

Havdalah - Supporting Refugees - Humanistically

Link visible for attendees

Jewish communities around the world have set aside time before Passover each spring to focus on the plight of refugees in our world today. In keeping with this tradition, after our brief Havdalah ceremony, we will discuss current refugee circumstances impacting our world and how we can contribute to a solution.

This event was rescheduled from March 26 which was canceled because of a wildfire near Boulder.

We will hear about how the Beth Ami cultural membership team is welcoming and befriending a newly-arrived Afghan family living in Lafayette.

We will also discuss the Ukraine catastrophe and note the fine work of World Central Kitchen in supporting families need for food during the ongoing invasion by Russia.

Join our Zoom call to contribute to this important discussion and share any ideas on how to help those in need.
