Dear Beth Am family,
Did you know that there are over 283,000 people on Long Island who are hungry and utilize the services of Island Harvest?
Did you know that 110,000 children on Long Island know hunger first hand – enough to fill Citi Field… more than TWICE!
That means that 1 in every 10 Long Islanders knows hunger first hand.
Island Harvest is the bridge between those who have a surplus of food and those who are in desperate need of it.
As I did last year, I am running a HIGH HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE from now to Sukkot to collect food to meet this growing crisis.
The items most in demand are: peanut butter, canned tuna, canned soup, bags of dried beans, canned beans, canned vegetables, cereal, canned fruit, rice, dried pasta, and oatmeal.
There will be collection boxes by the entrance doors upstairs; Island Harvest will pick up the food at the end of Sukkot, on .
Please do not bring food donations to Yom Kippur services.
On behalf of Island Harvest, I thank you for all your help and wish you and your families a Shanah Tovah U’Metukah - A Sweet & Happy New Year.
Rabbi Mickey Baum
SUMMER SERVICES AT
TEMPLE BETH AM
The first Friday night Summer Service will be on Friday, July 1st. These services will be held in the Social Hall, beginning at 8:00 pm, and last approximately 30 minutes. These services are informal and are conducted by the various arms of the Temple. A mini-oneg follows each service. The Yahrzeit list is read at every service. Dress is casual. There will be at least one special digital service led by Rabbi Mickey Baum, where he will be using an electronic white board to lead the service. We had this type of service last year and everyone enjoyed them and requested that we have them again. Each of these services gives us a nice start to the summer Sabbath. Please come and join us. If you would like to participate in any of these services, please contact the representative for that service or the temple office. We look forward to seeing you at one these services. Below is a list of the dates and each Temple arm that will be conducting the service.
Friday night services in the sanctuary will resume on
