About Bet Chaverim
Bet Chaverim is a progressive, egalitarian, conservative-leaning, non-affiliated congregation in Howard County, Maryland. We are looking for a part-time rabbi because our current part-time rabbi is leaving for a full-time position.
Celebrating our fifth year with almost 100 family units, we continue to grow exponentially and are fiscally sound. Our congregation has a warm appreciation for the diversity of today’s Jewish community. We work together as a member-driven synagogue to provide a joyous Jewish experience that affords a variety of opportunities and experiences through which our members can fulfill their religious and spiritual needs.
Bet Chaverim prides itself in strongly promoting warm inclusivity for congregants from all backgrounds and of all ages. Emphasizing both adult and child education is an important part of our mission. Torah-on-Tap encourages monthly casual conversation between the adults and the rabbi about topics of our choosing, over a beer. We also have an active Rosh Chodesh group. Additionally, our innovative Hebrew School is leading the way in creating deeply enriching experiences, which promote lifelong engagement in Jewish learning and Jewish living. The children learn that being Jewish is not just something that you “are”-- it is something you “do” every day. Bet Chaverim also values inclusion of our interfaith members.
