Shabbat Service Featuring a Jewish Perspective on Question 3 and Closing the Background Check Loophole in Maine Law Friday, October 28, 7:30 PM
Starts: 7:30 pm
Ends: October 28, 2016 - 9:00 pm
Description: Join Congregation Bet Ha'am for Shabbat worship on Friday night, October 28 at 7:30 PM when we will learn about the Jewish perspective on gun violence and communal responsibility.

Deena Metzler, who grew up at Bet Ha'am, and Bobby Reynolds, former member, will speak about Question 3 on behalf of Mainers for Responsible Gun Ownership, a coalition of community organizations, survivors of gun violence, law enforcement, faith leaders, domestic violence prevention advocates, sportsmen, law enforcement officials and other concerned Mainers working to close the background check loophole in Maine law. Rabbi Saks will round out the discussion with a Jewish perspective on gun violence.

Pay Member Dues

Bet Ha’am plays an important role in all of our lives, providing an open door for all during High Holidays and throughout the year.

The need for supporting the Annual Fund cannot be overstated. These unrestricted funds ensure we can cover our basic, day-to-day needs and meet our budgetary responsibilities, from salaries to building maintenance to Hebrew School supplies.

Membership dues do not cover the full cost of Bet Ha’am’s operations. We rely on the generous support of our members and friends to make Bet Ha’am available to all, regardless of ability to pay.


Judaica Shop

Congregation Bet Ha’am’s Judaica Shop is establishing itself as a leading regional opportunity for unique Judaica jewelry, holiday gifts and supplies, children’s items, and everyday items.  The Judaica Shop is open 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM Tuesday-Friday and Sunday mornings when our Religious School is open.  Please call (207) 879-0028 for inquiries or requests for special order items.  This page will soon have photos and ordering information for specific Judaica items.
