Beth Ami Temple and the Palo Cristi Presbyterian Church have a long history together. Many of our founding members came from Temple Solel in the 1970’s when they called the Palo Cristi Sanctuary home. In fact the Palo Cristi Presbyterian Church sanctuary holds the distinction of being the only Sanctuary in the valley designed to be both a church and a temple.
When Beth Ami Temple was formed in 1978, we met in homes for a year, then started meeting there again in 1979. Many years later our relationship continues to flourish. Together we hold canned food drives and support Family Promise during their twice yearly week-long visits.
Beth Ami Temple is proud of our friendship with Palo Cristi Presbyterian Church and we consider ourselves very lucky to be sharing their sanctuary.
