About

Meam Loez is the only Sephardic Anglo community in Ramat Beit Shemesh. Founded in 2007 to provide Sephardic olim with the warm and vibrant community that they were missing, it has grown exponentially over the years, serving as the heart and hub of Anglo Sephardim. In 2016, Meam Loez was privileged to move into its current beautiful building, a true Mikdash Me’at! Led by renowned talmid chacham Rav David Genish, Meam Loez provides members with all of their spiritual and communal needs.

It’s easy to find a place to daven; Meam Loez is a place to belong. Centrally located in the heart of Ramat Beit Shemesh, our beautiful building has the zechut to serve as the home to thousands of hours of tefilla, Torah, chessed and community events, 365 days a year. Our Beit Kenesset is the beating heart of our community. Our weekly Kiddush, our tefillot, events, shiurim, smachot, and so much more, make it “a one-stop shop” for the spiritual and communal needs of the Torah Jew.

Our future

 Sowing the seeds for our children’s Torah growth
One of our major focuses as a Kehilah is investing in our children. From a young age they actively participate in the tefilot, and our exciting youth programming throughout the week offers activities for all ages, from young children through teenagers. The shul truly becomes their second home. And there is no greater nachat than when our yeshiva boys return home for Bein Hazmanim. When we see them packing our Beit Midrash, and filling it with the sweet sounds of their learning, davening and dozens of siyumim, we know that we’ve done it right.

Our vision

“Everyone making Eretz Yisrael their home has spiritual dreams and aspirations for themselves and their children. When the reality of everyday life in a new country hits, these dreams can fall by the wayside. At Meam Loez, we create the infrastructure to turn the spiritual goals and aspirations of our mitpallelim into reality and give them and their children the gift of actualizing their dreams.”
