Temple Beth Am, “Temple of the People” welcomes you. Our kehillah kedosha, or sacred community, represents the rich diversity of the Jewish faith. Many of us are from Conservative and Reform backgrounds. We are also blessed by those who have chosen Judaism as their spiritual path as well as by those who are discovering and rediscovering their Jewish souls.
Temple Beth Am, an unaffiliated Jewish congregation, has served the Hemet/San Jacinto area since 1958. We are dedicated to maintaining the Jewish faith, providing a center for Jewish life, and interacting with our neighbors through community outreach.
Our services are congregation-based. We encourage and welcome everyone's participation. Prayer services occur on the first and third Friday of each month. We celebrate the major Jewish holidays.
As part of our community outreach program, we offer Hebrew classes and Jewish education classes on an ongoing basis.
Temple Beth Am is a place where our Jewish spirits connect in meaningful ways. The kavanah, or the intention that brings us together for worship, unites us as a synagogue of “the people.”

The Ten Commandments
I am the L‑rd your G‑d, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, nor any manner of likeness of anything that is in heaven above, that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them, nor serve them. For I the L‑rd your G‑d am a jealous G‑d, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children of the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; and showing mercy unto the thousandth generation of them that love Me and keep My commandments.
You shall not take the name of the L‑rd your G‑d in vain; for the L‑rd will not hold him guiltless that takes His name in vain.
Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work; but the seventh day is a Sabbath unto the L‑rd your G‑d. On it you shall not do any manner of work—you, your son, your daughter, your man-servant, your maid-servant, your cattle, and your stranger that is within your gates. For in six days the L‑rd made heaven and earth, the sea and all that in them is, and rested on the seventh day; wherefore the L‑rd blessed the Sabbath Day, and hallowed it.
Honor your father and mother, so that your days may be long upon the land which the L‑rd your G‑d gives you.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, his manservant, his maid-servant, his ox, his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.
