The Beth Ami Book Club held their monthly meeting on September 27th at the lovely home of Mariellen Miller. Mariellen and her doggie Georgie Girl led a stimulating discussion of the book The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizebeth Berg. Georgie Girl, who found the discussion quite interesting for awhile, decided she needed a good nap instead.

Approximately 80-90 people attended our Wine and Cheese Open House on September 6th. Beth Ami members shared the Beth Ami vision with friends, family, and guests to learn about our active adult congregation, services, and the many social activities and clubs that come with being a member of Beth Ami. Approximately 80-90 people attended the event.
Rabbi Allison Lawton, who is beginning her second year as rabbi of Beth Ami Temple, was unable to attend the event but created a video welcoming everyone to the Beth Ami. However, due to technical difficulties, we were unable to view the video during the Open House.
