Temple Beth Am

LAST UPDATED: October 29, 2018
Faith Based Organizations
Temple Beth Am embraces Jewish life through lifelong learning, spiritual growth and community engagement. Temple Beth Am, the House of the People, was founded in 1955, and is located in the Village of Pinecrest in South Miami-Dade County. Open to all, we are a nurturing and caring Reform congregation committed to Jewish continuity, life-long education, spiritual renewal, life-cycle transitions, Shabbat and holy day celebrations. Beth Am offers religious, educational, cultural, social and athletic programs that meet the dynamic needs of our community. Both the Temple Beth Am Day School and the Temple Beth Am Religious School, with their cutting edge curricula and excellence in the areas of general and Judaic Studies, enhance the academic and religious development of our children. Our continuous desire to honor our traditions and embrace a full spectrum of Jewish life led us to the construction of a new Home for Our Heritage — The Janet z"l and Richard Yulman Campus — connecting Jews to Judaism and each other for generations to come.
