Our services offer a traditional Jewish expression of prayer and study within the context of Reconstructionism’s philosophy of “the past having a vote but not a veto.” There is a combination of Hebrew and English, traditional prayers along with creative readings, and the incorporation of elements that our congregants find meaningful, such as healing prayers and meditation services. There is always an opportunity to bring the personal into the midst of community.
We hold Shabbat Services most Friday evenings at Congregation Brith Sholom, in Bethlehem, PA throughout the year. During the summer, we meet twice monthly at either at the synagogue or at a member’s home. There is also a dairy vegetarian potluck Family Shabbat Dinner once a month, and Shabbat Morning Torah Services once a month. Please check our calendar for current times and event details.
Am Haskalah has services or celebrations for most Jewish holidays as well as special events throughout the year. All services are available on Zoom. Due to COVID we may not always meet in person.
