Welcome ---  to  B'er Chayim Congregation. We are proud to be one of the oldest Congregations in Maryland, and have the oldest continuously operating Temple building in the state.  Our building is over 150 years old, as is our congregation. With a membership of about 45 families it is a tight-knit congregation with congregants ranging from 5 months to 100 years of age.  As a result of our small size, new members are welcomed into the fold quickly and are able to be as active as they are willing and able to be.  Please contact our membership chairperson for information on our introductory membership offer.

B'er Chayim is a member of the Union of Reform Jews. Our history of affiliations has varied over the years however, ranging from Orthodox when first chartered in 1853, through classical reform in the late 1800 and early 1900's, and finally merging with Beth Jacob Synagogue (a Conservative Shul) in 1998.  Our current services are respectful of each tradition, with traditional services being held on festivals and Shabbat, incorporating both conservative and reform styles of worship. Our goal is to be the center of Jewish life for our region, and as an active and thriving congregation, we have met our goal
