Reform Congregation Opens New Sanctuary in Conservative Synagogue

PARSIPPANY — Temple Beth Am, meeting on Zoom and in a temporary location for two years, has found a new permanent home. The congregation celebrated the opening of their new sanctuary, which is located within the premises of Adath Shalom in Morris Plains. Previously, Temple Beth Am was located on South Beverwyck Road.
 
Despite being forced to sell their building, the members of Temple Beth Am were determined to preserve their identity and voted to find a new home. With the Covid-19 pandemic preventing in-person gatherings, they continued to hold services and Torah study on Zoom while searching for a new space. Eventually, they signed a lease with Adath Shalom and began constructing a beautiful new sanctuary within the Adath Shalom building.
Temple Beth Am’s new home was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, attended by 1st Vice President Pat Greenberg, Mayor James Barbeiro, and Rabbi Matthew Reimer.
 
On Friday, May 5 Parsippany-Troy Hills Mayor James Barberio cut the ribbon as the congregation escorted their Torahs into their new home. A  joyous family Shabbat service included the Temple Beth Am choir and special Oneg.
Members of the congregation carry the Torah.
 
The celebration continued on Saturday morning, May 6, with Torah Study led by Rabbi Matthew Reimer and a complimentary breakfast. Saturday evening offered an evening of fun, food, and entertainment. Dinner was served, and a comedy show followed with comedian Johnny Lampert (www.johnnylampert.com). The cost was $36.00 per person.
 
To enjoy a Temple Beth Am tour, don’t hesitate to contact the Temple office at office@tbaparsippany.org. They will gladly give you a tour of their new Sanctuary and Religious School classrooms. The celebratory weekend concluded with a free breakfast on Sunday morning as they completed another successful Religious School year.
