Community Fun

This fall and winter, Bet Ha’am is pleased to bet thinking of fun ways for adults and families to stay engaged with our community. We will update this page with details as they become available. If you have questions, please contact the office and we’ll connect you to our fantastic outreach volunteers.

Trip to Israel
April 16-26, 2020 will be our family trip to Israel, led by Rabbi Saks. On this journey of inspiration and education, we will experience Israel from ancient history to high-tech innovation; explore the diversity, challenges, and triumphs of the nation; participate in family and community adventures, including a tikkun olam activity; feel Jerusalem’s holiness, Tel Aviv’s energy, the north’s serenity; meet and join leaders in the struggle for religious equality; float in the Dead Sea and ride Jeeps on Golan Heights; celebrate Shabbat with a local Reform community. We will be led by outstanding tour educators from Arza World. Check out the flipbook and the tour itinerary. Registration deadline is November 27, 2019. Please contact Karen Hindall in the office if you have questions.

Challah with Standard Baking | Date TBD
Alison Prey of Standard Baking–a two-time finalist for Best Bakery from the James Beard Foundation–will teach us how to bake challah. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from one of the greatest bread makers in the US. All ages are welcome. We will gather at 7pm and end around 9pm. Cost: $20 per person. Maximum number of people is 15.

Summer-in-Winter Festival | Date TBD
Why stop being active just because it’s cold? Come play six-hole mini golf course, cornhole, and other family-friendly tournament games. Win prizes! Potluck dinner and other festivities.

Introduction to Snowshoeing | Sunday, January 26
L.L. Bean will host a Bet Ha’am-only class on the one Sunday when there is definitely no Patriots game. The 2-hour class includes a hot chocolate break. No experience is necessary and there are no age requirements. It’s one of the most fun classes anyone could take. The class will run from 1pm until 3pm. Cost: $20 per person. Maximum number of people is 14–or 28 (we’ll get a second instructor).
