Yom Shlishi, 7 Elul 5774

Welcome to Bet Chaverim 

 

We are a small, friendly Reform congregation located in Des Moines, Washington, between Seattle and Tacoma.  We serve the Jewish Community of South King and North Pierce Counties.

 

Since our founding in 1989, Bet Chaverim has been an inclusive community, welcoming a diverse membership.  We are made up of a range of ages, singles, married couples, and families.  We are proud of our interfaith couples.  Although members generally live in South King and North Pierce Counties, others come from further away, drawn by the quality of the services, the education we provide for children and adults, as well as the numerous social and cultural activities.

 

Our goal is to continue to build a Jewish community based on inclusiveness, and reflecting the congregation's belief in cooperation and mutual support.

 

We welcome and invite you.

 

From Our Prayer Book, Mishkan T’filah: A Reform Siddur p. 516

O Guardian of life and liberty,

may our nation always merit Your protection.

Teach us to give thanks for what we have

by sharing it with those who are in need.

Keep our eyes open to the wonders of creation,

and alert to the care of the earth.

May we never be lazy in the work of peace;

may we honor those who have died in defense of our ideals.

Grant our leaders wisdom and forebearance.

May they govern with justice and compassion.

Help us all to appreciate one another,

and to respect the many ways that we may serve You.

May our homes be safe from affliction and strife,

and our country be sound in body and spirit.

 

Amen
