Welcome to Our Temple

Serving the growing Jewish population on the Delmarva Peninsula, Temple Bat Yam is a Reform Jewish congregation committed to the ideals and eternal truths of Judaism. Our intent is to maintain the traditions and lessons of our rich heritage while respecting the realities and integrity of interfaith marriages and interfaith families. We encourage participation by all family members and spouses in our congregational life, despite religious diversity within a household. We believe the spiritual interests of both our congregation and those of our interfaith couples and families are best served by inclusion within the nurturing community of Temple Bat Yam.

The Women of Temple Bat Yam Gift Shop is Officially Open for Business

We carry a variety of Judaica gifts including jewelry, mezuzahs, kiddush cups, seder plates, menorahs, kippot, candles, toys and much, much more.
