Our Liturgy

The liturgy used at Beth Adam services is an expression of who we are and what we believe. It gives voice to Judaism’s ever-unfolding religious experience and promotes the humanistic values of intellectual honesty, open inquiry, and human responsibility.

While drawing heavily on traditional Jewish sources, our liturgy is written by Beth Adam members, and has been since our inception. In our effort to create an atmosphere that allows for individual expression of deeply held religious beliefs, we have chosen to employ a language that we view as expansive and inclusive. We strive to create liturgy that allows each individual to draw spiritual comfort and meaning, while respecting his or her own understanding of God and the nature of the universe.

Copies of all of our liturgy may be purchased online at our Beth Adam shop
