Special Temple Beth Am Event!


Please join us Friday night April 20th at 8:00pm for a special Shabbat Service followed by a discussion by our Special Guest Speaker, Joan Arnay Halperin, author of the book: “My Sister’s Eyes”.



Joan’s book is a family chronicle of rescue and loss during World War II. It tells the story of the Krakowiak family from their prosperous life in Poland and Belgium through the Nazi onslaught and their perilous flight to freedom.

Temple Beth Am Brotherhood has purchased 25 copies of the book using funds from our annual Yom Hashoah Candle Fundraiser.  

Most of the books will be donated to the Temple Library for use by our Hebrew School students, as well as our general membership.  A limited number of copies will also be given away during a book signing, where Joan will be answering questions during our Oneg immediately following the service.

Please plan on attending this special event!
