In 1953, a small group of Jewish families began holding meetings to establish a Reform Jewish congregation in Bayonne, New Jersey, and founded Temple Beth Am.

Temple Beth Am was established as Bayonne's liberal Jewish congregation, meeting at the Labor Lyceum theater, the First Presbyterian Church, and the Menorah Lodge, before moving to our present location on Avenue B in 1955.

We are a caring community, and today we continue the dreams of our founding families by maintaining our beautiful, barrier-free synagogue.

Membership in Temple Beth Am provides you with a wide array of worship, life-cycle, educational, cultural, and social activities
and programs.
