Welcome to Temple Beth Am

The Center for Progressive Reform Judaism in Metrowest

Temple Beth Am is a warm and vibrant Reform Jewish community located in Framingham, MA, comprised of members from the greater Metro West area. Founded in 1956 and affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, members and visitors find a relaxed and informal atmosphere in which people of all ages, backgrounds & orientations come to worship, learn, enjoy music, explore Judaism, & find new friends.

“Hats Off” to Our Volunteers and “Thinking Caps On” for Future Volunteers

The Greater Boston Jewish Coalition for Literacy (GBJCL) mobilizes the Jewish community to help elementary school children discover the joy of reading by building meaningful relationships with a caring adult.

Through partnerships with synagogues, Jewish community organizations, day schools, and businesses, GBJCL engages volunteers in school-based one-to-one reading tutoring, book drives, and advocacy efforts in high-needs schools.

Participants include “empty nesters,” working professionals, at-home parents, retirees, and teens. Volunteers come from all backgrounds and do not need professional training in education nor are they required to be Jewish.

There will be future opportunities at Charlotte Dunning Elementary School where the teachers and students are very enthusiastic! GBJCL staff provide guidance and volunteer networking and development events throughout the year. If interested in hearing more about our dedicated and growing TBA team, please feel free to contact Merle Kushner,, and explore the GBJLC website at

GBJCL is a community engagement effort of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston. JCRC is a coalition of organizations and individuals that represents and advances the values, interests, and priorities of the organized Jewish community in Greater Boston through its network of agencies, programs and partnerships.

Bruchim Ha’Baim — Welcome to Temple Beth Am!

From the very first time I stepped into the Temple Beth Am building, I knew that this was a community that is proud of its storied history and takes deep joy in celebrating Jewish life together. I am proud to share in that rich history as we share life’s ups and downs together in worship, in song, and in learning. Wherever you are in your Jewish journey, we welcome you to come see for yourself what makes our community so unique.

Welcome from Cantor David Wolff

Hello and Welcome to Temple Beth Am!

Temple Beth Am is a welcoming and diverse Reform Jewish community. The deep well of Jewish wisdom guides us as we celebrate the joys of life together, and support each other in life’s challenges. Jewish music enriches our community, bringing us together in communal singing and prayer. Jewish education, in our K-12 religious school, paves the way for a bright future at Temple Beth Am. We hope you will join us in learning, singing, and supporting one another!

Community Groups

Temple Beth Am offers several community groups to socialize, plan holiday celebrations and educational events as well as community service events.
