Since its founding in 1985, Bet Ha’am has been committed to being a house of worship where all feel welcome. We invite you to join us for any Bet Ha’am service or event, including High Holy Day worship.
During High Holy Day services, everyone — members and non-members alike — wears name tags to allow us to get to know each other better. Members receive their name tags automatically. We ask non-members who wish to attend High Holy Day services to contact us in advance for a High Holy Day schedule and name tag. There will also be a courtesy desk available to assist you upon arriving at any holiday service.
We rely on volunteer and financial support from all us each year to ensure the strength of our synagogue community. We anticipate that those who choose to attend our Shabbat or holiday services year after year will recognize the importance of formally joining our community. Our dues policy, based on the ability to pay, ensures that everyone can afford to join. We welcome your support!View Religious Calendar View Events Calendar

Give to the Bet Ha’am Annual Fund.
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.
Making a tax-deductible gift is easy. If you would like to make a contribution using a credit card, just click on the button below, and you will be taken through the quick and simple process.
To make a gift using a check or cash, please send it:
c/o BH Annual Fund,
Congregation Bet Ha’am Office,
81 Westbrook Street,
South Portland, Maine 04106
If you would like to make a gift of stock or a bequest, please contact the Bet Ha’am Office at (207) 879-0028.
You can also make a gift to our Annual Fund on behalf of a friend or family member. The Bet Ha’am office will send a letter to the individual(s) acknowledging your gesture and your gift will also be listed in our monthly Chadashot newsletter. Recognizing a loved one in this way is a wonderful way to show how important they are to you while supporting Bet Ha’am.
Bet Ha’am also participates in the “Clynk” Program! Save your recyclable bottles and cans in a green Bet Ha’am Clynk bag, redeem at any Clynk center, and all funds raised support our operating budget. Clynk bags are available in the lobby. Thank you!
