Bet Chaverim Overview

Howard County’s newest congregation is modern, member-driven, and inclusive, with roots in Conservative practice and a warm appreciation for the diversity of today’s Jewish community. 
 
Bet Chaverim is led by Rabbi Morris Zimbalist (913-617-8722 or Rabbi.zimbalist@gmail.com). Services are held every weekend (2 Friday night services and 2 Saturday morning services per month), on the High Holidays, and major Jewish festivals. Life cycle events are supported and recognized. Visit our Calendar page and click on specific events for more detailed information.  
 
This is a highly interactive congregation.  We enjoy sharing Shabbat dinners  and desserts socials monthly in members' homes.  We also have frequent events planned by our active Social Committee.  We are genuinely interested in welcoming new members to our congenial group.
 
For more information on joining Bet Chaverim as a member, please read the Membership page or contact Heather Zimmerman, Membership Chair at heather_zimmerman@verizon.net or 410-480-8361.
