Sapphires and Sequins

Thank you to all of those who donated their time, talent, and treasure to our sacred community!

On Saturday, March 26th, 2022, our members and friends came together through our Online and In-Person Galas to ensure the financial sustainability of Temple Beth Am. The hard work of our Gala Committee and staff allowed us to celebrate being in community with each other while raising the money that allows us to achieve Beth Am’s mission. This year, thanks to your generosity, we have raised over $135,000 so far! Every Gala ticket, sponsorship, raffle entry, and purchase of Community Connector Events helps sustain our vibrant Jewish community.


If you haven’t had a chance to sign-up for Community Connectors, you’re in luck! We have reopened our Online Gala. Click here to browse our available Community Connectors and purchase spots! Thanks to the generosity of your fellow members, who have donated these incredible experiences, every dollar collected at this Online Gala will go directly to supporting Temple Beth Am. 

Or you can simply make a donation to support the services, programs, and learning at Beth Am. Please click here to make a donation.


We would greatly appreciate feedback so we can continue to improve on this special community celebration. If you were not in attendance, we would still love to learn more about why and how we can best serve you too! Please click here to take the event survey.
