Sunday,  December 11, 2011 - Trip to National Museum of Jewish American History.  The trip was originally offered to our 5th-7th graders but is now open to the congregation.  The cost of this wonderful day trip will be $36.00.  This will include transportation and museum entrance fees.  Participants will be able to purchase lunch at the museum if they wish and we will be stopping on the way home for dinner – so spending money should be sent with all participants.  We have a 1:00pm reservation at the Museum, so we will be leaving from Beth Am at around 8:45am that morning, and anticipate returning around 9:30pm.  More information
