Who We Are
Welcome to Bet Ha’am!
We warmly welcome all who wish to enter our doors—Jews and those who interested in Reform Judaism. Inside our bet ha’am (“house of the people”), you will find a thriving community from roughly 350 households who engage in Jewish life and learning while developing connections to each other and to the world around them.
We offer regular opportunities for prayer and music, with enthusiastic participation and an open and progressive approach to ritual. We are committed to continuing Jewish education for learners of all ages and stages, with a religious school program that serves around 150 students and an active schedule of adult and intergenerational learning opportunities. We encourage participation in the repair of our world through both social action and social justice, opening our doors to both the greater community and to all who wish to join us.
- a community, welcoming all and embracing diversity;
- a family, sharing in Jewish life together;
- a center for Reform Judaism in Southern Maine, engaging in making the world a better place.
