Our congregation today


Beit Rambam is a plural Kehilah, with a commitment for reflecting faithfully the complex reality of the Jewish identity, as it is currently being expressed, in all its richness and diversity. The associated members wish to keep that identity alive, according to the principles of equality, tradition and modernity. We are a congregation open to all Jews, both residents and those temporary visitors in Andalusia. Among us, all of them have a place and a space of encounter and participation: men and women, Sephardic and Ashkenazy, religious and secular, with no distinction.

The Jews that form Beit Rambam are aware that what they intend to achieve is not an easy task, but are convinced that time has come to start working for the future of the Jewish congregation in Andalusia with professionalism, excitement and dedication. The well known words passed on by Hillel, one of the wisest sages of Judaism in antiquity, is our best source of inspiration:

If I am not for myself, who is for me? And when I am only for myself, what am 'I'? And if not now, then when?"
