Congregation Betenu is a Reform Synagogue located in Amherst, New Hampshire.  Betenu is a small, warm and friendly congregation.  Our mission is to be a home for all who wish to participate in Jewish community.

Betenu has made the very difficult decision to postpone all services, religious school classes, and activities through April 1, 2020, in an effort to help keep our families and friends healthy and safe from the coronavirus.  We hope you will take this opportunity to connect with family.  Give a friendly call to another Betenu member or friend!
