At Temple Beth Abraham our Jewish backgrounds are diverse. We are made up of families and individuals of all types, including interfaith and LGBTQ. We offer worship services in both the Reform and Conservative traditions. Our building is fully handicapped-accessible, and we believe that every Jewish child deserves a Jewish education, no matter their learning style or challenges. We take pride in our Tikkun Olam program, which provides projects and social action activities for all ages in all seasons. We have a dynamic and innovative Religious School with award-winning faculty, and we offer an active and vibrant adult education program for life-long learning. more
