Bet Ha'am Provides Monthly Meal at Friendship House
Starts: 4:30 pm
Ends: November 14, 2018 - 5:30 pm
Location: 390 Lincoln St, South Portland, ME 04106, USA
Description: Friendship House (390 Lincoln Street, South Portland) was built 30 years ago as a residence for men (and, initially, women) who were coming out of a rehab program and needed transitional housing before they could move into their own home.

The Bet Ha'am community has provided a monthly meal to residents of Friendship House for many many years, and we continue to do so today.

Here's how it works:
Bet Ha'am members bring an evening meal for 14-16 residents one Wednesday a month from September through May.

Faith Moritz and Solange Kellermann coordinate the meal, calling on a group of 10-12 people, who bring food to Friendship House. We suggest each person cook for about 8-10 (or more if they are so inclined). There is a theme for each month, but no one has to adhere to it too closely.

Food can be dropped off anytime during the day, as long as it's there by 5:30, when dinner is served. Faith and Solange make sure the food gets on the table by then.

The men love the food we make, and are deeply grateful for the support. Please join us in continuing this wonderful tradition.

Please contact Solange Kellerman at 577-0648 if you are interested in contributing towards our next meal.

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.
