In the Jewish tradition, this special time of year is for renewal and reflection. In this spirit, our Temple Beth Am community comes together to worship, celebrate, and connect. We welcome everyone to be a part of our community and share in this time with us - whether you are a member, a guest, or someone new to TBA entirely - making the Days of Awe that much more awe-inspiring.
For a look at our upcoming High Holy Days services, celebrations, and programming, you can view our High Holy Days booklet here. You can order guest tickets from our website by creating a guest account or contact Sara Bernson.
Please register by Wednesday, October 19. Members and guests can register by going to https://www.chaverweb.net/Congregant/SignUp.aspx?key=T23712060321&sid=3576. Then go to "Events" and choose "Simchat Sukkot." Please call the office at 206-525-0915 for any questions.

December 4 - 14, 2016
Join us this December as we explore our shared history, deepen our friendships, partake in the fine foods of the Mediterranean and learn from the changemakers in Israel. We'll make meaningful visits to the most renowned landmarks and best kept secrets of Israel in the company of seasoned travellers Rabbi Zlotnick and Rachel Schachter.
Open to all seniors, to allow you to participate in evening programs at TBA, our Senior Rides Program is intended for people who have been unable to participate in activities at our synagogue because they do not have access to transportation or do not feel comfortable driving at night.
Go to our Seniors page for more info.
Like to work with kids? Enjoy singing, art, or organizing? You can help us here at TBA!
In Temple Beth Am's Madrichim (Teaching Assistant) Program, students in 8th-12th grade can learn all about working in a school while receiving guidance from the teachers, staff, and teen supervisors. Positions vary widely, and include jobs such as classroom teaching assistant, photographer, song leader, art assistant, office assistant, and librarian. Community service hours and training available.
Go here for details and to download forms, whether you've been a Madrichim in the past or are new to the program.
We have a wonderful new way to celebrate Shabbat: sponsor an oneg (before or after evening services) in honor of a person or occasion, or in memory of a loved one.
Sponsorship costs only $100. Your name and the name of the honoree will be mentioned at the Shabbat service for the oneg you are sponsoring.
Go here for details on how to sponsor.
