The Chai Society, as its name suggests, is for families who have been members of Temple Beth Am for at least eighteen years and form the nucleus of the hard-core segment of congregation membership. By virtue of lengthy membership, generous support and dedication, the Chai Society acts as a stabilizing force and a cohesive element in the congregation. Chai Society members continue to be active participants in the congregation by serving on our board of trustees and various committees.
The Chai Society sponsors several programs during the year. These programs are educational, entertaining and provide an opportunity for socialization among members. There are additional programs to which we invite the entire congregation.
Although the Chai Society does not act as a fundraising or service arm of the Temple, it contributes to several Hebrew school and temple functions throughout the year.
