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.  

Dreaming Up High Holydays 2020~5781

Beit Ahavah's High Holyday Dream: New Machzorim!

Thanks to the amazing generosity of our beloved community, we have raised funds to purchase over 150 sets of new Reform machzor, the Mishkan HaNefesh: Machzor for the Days of Awe, a stunning two-volume set designed with our contemporary world in mind.


Any additional funds raised will go toward even more sets of these machzorim to use this year and for many years to come!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our Honey from the Heart Fundraiser!

Our Communal Jewish Life During COVID-19

While Beit Ahavah is not using our sacred space for group gatherings until it is safe to do so, our congregation is very active meeting online and in other alternative ways for services, learning, meetings and life cycles. We are guided by Jewish precepts including: "To save a life is to save the world." Read a message from our Rabbi about the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and ways to connect HERE.

Please visit our calendar and Facebook page for updates, religious services, youth and adult events, learning and committee meetings, as well as support, humor and suggestions to grow Jewishly. An update from May 19, 2020 about our space and process during COVID-19 is here.
