Welcome to Congregation Beth Avraham/Anshei Sfard!

What's New?

Beth Avraham is a BET MEDRASH!
  • A Bet Medrash is in some ways even better than shul!
  • It is more transformative!
  • It is a study circle ,where Everyone has  equal place.
  • You get more "to take home" (knowledge).
  • Cost less to run!
  • All the lively major US kehillot today have their roots in a Bet Medrash!
  • We are now building our new Bet Medrash. We don't have a permanent building yet, but a Bet Medrash can function even without one.
  • We always win even if we don't get a large number attending.

Welcome to Congregation Beth Avraham, the Lehigh Valley's Only Nusach Sfard synagogue (O).

WHAT IS OUR SHUL LIKE?
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT OUR SHUL?

  • Totally non-judgemental
  • Whether you know nothing, everything or something in between, you will feel comfortable
  • No one will ever discuss what you are wearing, how you got there or how good/bad the Chazzan chanted.
  • The Prayer Services are compelling and serious, yet lively and easy to follow.
  • The county's only Orthodox Synagogue.
  • Holiday seats are not sold.
  • Money is never a barrier to full participation.
  • Small town friendly.
  • Everyone is family at Beth Avraham.

Thinking Of Moving Here? IF you have pioneering spirit and you want to live in a clean healthy, natural environment, then consider us!
Nestled in a valley and mountainside at the beginning of the Pocono Mountains lies a gem of a town : beautiful, historic, tranquil Bethlehem , close to Philadelphia (1hr) and New York City (1hr. 20 min.). The housing costs are very low especially when compared to any area in North Jersey ! Taxes are very low , crime rate is low and the city offers a rich array of services usually not found in smaller towns.
