Beth Am Israel Synagogue | Penn Valley, Pennsylvania
Warmly welcoming, Beth Am Israel Synagogue is a physical representation of the values shared by its community. Solidly constructed of modest, yet beautifully composed materials, with spaces that clearly distinguish the sacred from the everyday, this new facility supports the primary components of worship, study, and community that provide the foundation for Beth Am Israel’s members. Above all, it is a place in which they can fully experience and deepen their ancient faith, while enriching their contemporary community.
