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.
