“The synagogue is the sanctuary of Israel. It was born out of Israel’s longing for the living God. It has been to Israel throughout his endless wanderings a visible token of the presence of God in the midst of the people. It has shed a beauty that is the beauty of holiness and has ever stood on the high places as the champion of justice and brotherhood and peace. Its truths are true for all, its love is a love for all, its God is the God of all, even as was prophesied of old, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”
These words are a reflection of the place that the synagogue and the sanctuary hold in our lives, as well as in the history of our people. They remind us of the spiritual inheritance that has sustained us as the oldest, unbroken cultural and religious tradition in human history.
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.
reflecting the Jewish tradition which commands us to remember and to live!
