Talmud Torah Award — 2017


Congratulations to Joseph Jacoby, recipient of the 19th annual Talmud Torah Award, honoring a congregant who has contributed significantly to the Temple by engaging thoughtfully in our adult education programs.


JOE JACOBY REFLECTS ON HIS TIME AT TEMPLE BETH AM...

 “I have been blessed to call Beth Am the central address of my Jewish life and learning for almost 35 years. I am who I am today — on so many levels — because of my formal and informal learning here. At Beth Am I learned what a Jewish community should look like, how to be a caring and transformational leader, how to give to the community so it can support itself and, yes, how to study Torah, which leads to them all. Learning and living a Jewish life connects all of us to the larger Jewish world through our common history and our shared vision for a brighter future. How lucky my family and I have been to have had this amazing institution, and this incredible kehila kedosha, in our lives.”
