Our Staff and Leadership

Welcome From Our Rabbi

B’ruchim ha-ba’im l’Bet Ha’am–Welcome to Bet Ha’am! I am so glad that you are exploring our community and hope that you find the same warmth and welcome that I have seen and experienced here.

Each person and each family comes to Bet Ha’am with different needs and different talents. I hope that we can begin to meet your needs and that we can help to reap the benefits of your talents. As you explore the many facets of our community, know that our doors are always open.

Whether you are trying out worship, dipping your toe in adult learning, participating in the Jewish education of your child, or finding some other aspect of Bet Ha’am that speaks to your soul, I hope that you will feel comfortable here.
