Who We Are

The congregation of Temple Am David, through a succession of mergers, which adapted to the changing Jewish Community in Rhode Island, celebrates a rich history dating back more than 100 years. Today, Am David is a leading Conservative synagogue complete with a beautiful sanctuary, spacious social hall, school wing, and library.

Our Temple is a place of worship and a center for spiritual, educational, and cultural enrichment. We believe strongly that the practice of Judaism should be a meaningful and enjoyable experience for all our members.  Our ecofriendly temple has taken steps to reduce our energy consumption (and costs!) such as replacing older light bulbs with more energy-efficient models and we will soon be the recipient of a “Solar Saver” heating and hot water system.

Am David strives to be a second home to congregants. Our synagogue is a place where you can enjoy friendship, comfort and renewal in a traditional Jewish sense, while keeping focused on ever changing needs facing the Jewish community. Read what members have to say!
