Welcome to Beit Ahavah

Together we nourish the soul, heal the world, and build Jewish community.

For over 20 years, Beit Ahavah has been a progressive Reform Jewish community committed to spiritual enlivenment. 

We strive to create a sacred community, recognizing there are many ways of connecting with Judaism.

Rabbi Riqi Kosovske blends tradition and deep spirituality with her radically progressive consciousness.

To give is a profoundly spiritual act, allowing our collective dreams to become reality.
