JON KISLAK REFLECTS ON HIS TIME AT TEMPLE BETH AM...

 “I grew up at Temple Beth Am and celebrated life’s milestones here, including religious school, bar mitzvah and confirmation. In addition, all four of my children attended the Day School. I have seen Beth Am grow from the founding families to the flourishing community we have today. I am confident in the future.

"Temple Beth Am has provided me the opportunity to continue my Jewish learning. I joined a TBAM chavurah over 30 years ago, and our group continues to celebrate simchas together.

"I look forward to Saturday mornings. Torah provides us with the wisdom of our ancestors; study helps me apply Jewish values to my daily life.

"This community has given me so many opportunities to learn and grow. I feel lucky to call Temple Beth Am home.”
