Yom Shabbat, 1 Nisan 5778


Beit Haverim is an open, inviting, and spiritually alive Jewish community, located just outside of Portland, Oregon in Lake Oswego. Beit Haverim began in 1992 as South Metro Jewish Community located in West Linn, Oregon, and in 1998 SMJC evolved into a congregation. In 2007 SMJC adopted the Hebrew name of Beit Haverim, expressing the essence of who we are – a House of Friends.

We welcome everyone to our Reform congregation of Jews by birth, Jews by choice, and Jews at heart. A congregation where families and individuals experience the sense of Jewish belonging that comes from shared worship, religious instruction, Tikkun Olam, and social events at a location not too far from home.



Thursday, March 15  12:00pm – 1:30pm  Rabbi Berg will lead an Adult Study Group entitled History of Eastern Jewry in the 1920s and 1930s  
Our next Tot Shabbat will be March 16th at 6 pm.  Bring your young children and grandchildren. (You don't need to be a member to come.)

Our Book Discussion Group will meet next on March 18th at 2:30.  We will discuss The Bridal Chair by Gloria Goldreich.   

Beit Haverim supports the March for Our Lives at 10 am on March 24th at Terry Schrunk Plaza in downtown Portland. Many of our members and friends will be marching.  We hope you will join us.

Beit Haverim supports the Symbolic Seder at the ICE (immigration) office, 4310 SW Macadam, Portland on Thursday March 29 from 10-11AM. Last year participants read from a Haggadah and sang Passover songs and plan to do something similar this year. Passover is a time for Jews to reflect upon, and show support, for immigrants in this country.
