About the Services
All services are conducted in English with a generous amount of Hebrew and much singing. On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services are led by Rabbi Karen Bookman Kaplan and Beverly Myers, cantorial soloist, accompanied by our pianist David Deschamps and the Beth Am Choir. During the rest of the year members of the congregation serve as cantor accompanied by David Deschamps. The choir also sings on some holidays and Shabbat services.Rabbi Kaplan leads Festival and shabbat services, usually two Friday evenings and one shabbat morning. Beth Am has a long tradition of services led by members, which is continued on the weeks when the rabbi is not in the pulpit.
