The Menorat Hamaor Kehilla is a wide cross-section of Ramat Bet Shemesh residents who have established, and are committed to maintaining, an Orthodox congregation, following the Ashkenazi tradition and building a strong sense of community and love of Eretz Yisrael.
We count amongst our members many multi-generation families, meaning that in addition to our core couples and their children, we also have many grandparents (and even great-grandparents) who have come to the area to live close by their families.
This gives our shul a strong sense of unity, while also maintaining a wide spectrum of backgrounds and views. This is reflected in our approach to davening, where we maintain and integrate the traditions that our older members brought with them from their countries of origin, while incorporating the knowledge that our younger members gain at their Yeshivot.
The kehilla runs a range of learning programs and activities, including in-depth shiurim and introductory classes. We also organise events designed to encourage interaction between member families.
The Rav of the Shul is Rabbi Danny Myers.
The Shul is located at Rehov Nahal Maor 6, Ramat Bet Shemesh Aleph.
