Back to School Bash

We’re kicking off our Temple Beth Am Religious School year with a special Back to School Bash and fundraiser for 2019-2020. Each year, Temple Beth Am gives families around $60,000 in Religious School scholarships. Tuition collected only partially covers the cost of operating our program with the addition of money from the Temple Beth Am annual operating budget. Let us work to ensure Jewish learning is accessible to all of the youth in our congregation as we help create the next generation of super mensches!

In the spirit of inclusion, engagement, and supporting Temple Beth Am, all of the money raised at this fun event will go towards Religious School scholarships, so we can continue to impart core Jewish values and connectedness to our children. 

Join us for a great night at Beth Am for everyone: adults and kids will have their own events happening in separate spaces at the temple, and then we’ll come together for a beautiful havdallah with our fantastic song leaders and Cantor Victor Geigner.

Plus, meet our new Director of Youth and Family Learning, Rabbi Dana Benson!

*Admission INCLUDES tickets for food trucks and drinks for adults.
