Membership

"Beth Chaim is a warm and accepting community that sees diversity as a strength. I can’t think of a more important quality to possess as we prepare for the challenges of the twenty-first century."

 

Mitzvah

Beth Chaim prides itself in not only providing a place for worship and a connection to tradition, it also has a strong sense of responsibility to the surrounding community and social justice.  Join our congregation and help us reach beyond our Temple walls. 

 

Religious School

Beth Chaim is the first Reform Congregation in Chester County.  We now have over 200 families enrolled in teaching  children the joys and beauty of Judaism. The school is committed to helping our children build a second home, their jewish identity and ownership of the values of this community.

Lightly Used Shoes for Soles4Souls

 in honor of Matthew Bentley's Mitzvah until September 17th

Hi, I'm Matthew Bentley and I'm having my Bar Mitzvah on September 24, 2016. For my Bar Mitzvah project, I'm holding a fundraiser at the Temple for Soles4Souls.  Soles4Souls is a non-profit company that takes new and gently used shoes to 127 countries and all 50 states in the U.S.A., and their goal is to one day rid those countries of poverty. There will be a Soles4Souls labeled box in the lobby of the Temple for donations. The fundraiser will last from August 1, 2016 - September 17, 2016. Please donate to Soles4Souls to help people in poverty. If you would like to know more information on Soles4Souls , go to https://soles4souls.org. Thank you in advance for your donations.
