Jubilee is described as the special year following the end of seven cycles – the Jubilee year – which is the 50th year. The word ‘jubilee’ comes from the Hebrew word yovel, or ram’s horn, which was used to signal the beginning of the jubilee or the 50th year. In modern times, a golden jubilee marks a 50th anniversary.
“Proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you..”
In October 1971, seven couples met to establish a Reform Jewish congregation in northwest Montgomery County, and in November, the congregation’s first Shabbat service was held at Ritchie Park Elementary School.
50 years later, Temple Beth Ami remains a vibrant congregational community, and it’s time to celebrate!
