From August 1 to September 16, America’s Journey for Justice–an historic 860-mile march from Selma, Alabama, to Washington, D.C.–will mobilize activists and advance a focused national advocacy agenda that protects the right of every American to a fair criminal justice system, uncorrupted and unfettered access to the ballot box, sustainable jobs with a living wage, and equitable public education.

Congregation Beth Am is a warm, welcoming congregation. We invite all members of the Jewish Community to join us, regardless of background, knowledge, age, marital status, race, or sexual orientation; a place which strives to create services which are spiritually powerful and deeply moving to those who attend. It’s a place which pushes its members to do Jewish things – to live Jewishly, not just to talk about Judaism.

Rabbi Rosenberg has been leading Congregation Beth Am in North Tampa since 2007. He comes from the world of science. He has a degree in Computer Science, and worked as a professional Computer Programmer before entering Rabbinical School. He was ordained from HUC-JIR, the Reform Movement’s Seminary, in New York in 2001, and he still believes that the best religion is one which challenges us to use our rationality and intellect, as well as our spirit. He believes that science and religion are not enemies (or, at least, they shouldn’t be!), but rather need to both be respected. He believes that by embracing both, we can be better at both.
