Advocacy Training Day with Maine People’s Alliance and the Bet Ha’am Tikkun Olam Council
Jan 27 @ 12:15 pm – 2:30 pm

Tikkun Olam – Do you want to (learn to) become an effective advocate for positive change in the world? Do you want to put your Jewish values to work for Tikkun Olam? Do you want to learn the principles and tools for effective legislative and regulatory advocacy? Come learn from the experts at the Maine People’s Alliance and the Bet Ha’am Tikkun Council at our Advocacy Training day on January 27, 2019 from 12:15 to 2:30 PM. A delicious lunch will be provided.

At the training, we will have the opportunity to learn what works (and what doesn’t) in contacting legislators, writing letters to government, making phone calls, preparing legislative testimony, and more. As the new Maine legislative session gets under way, there will be a number of bills relating to our core issue of Immigrant Employment, as well as other important issues, that will benefit from public input. Having the Jewish voice heard loud and clear from the Bet Ha’am community will be vitally important as we support or oppose legislation and regulations that effect New Mainers in their efforts to become more secure in our community.

Please join us!

PHILANTHROPY RE-IMAGINED: A RADICAL APPROACH TO TIKKUN OLAM & GIFTS OF WEALTH, WORK, AND WISDOM – WITH BENJAMIN GORELICK AND OTHERS
Jan 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Monday evenings, January 28; Feb. 4, 11, 25 (No class on Feb. 18 – Presidents Day).
6:30 – 8:00 PM
Location: Congregation Bet Ha’am
Suggested tuition: $48
4 sessions
Enrollment: Minimum 10 /Max. 22
Registration deadline: Friday, January 18

Course Description: I’ve written three different course descriptions, and my wife keeps saying “It sounds like you’re going to hit people up for money. Also, what does Tikkun Olam have to do with philanthropy? I don’t see the connection.” That, of course, is the problem. Tikkun Olam and Philanthropy, if done right, are one in the same.

What does it mean to be a philanthropist? What do non-profits really need, to do their best work? This course will challenge the existing order of things, inspiring you, the giver, to solve big problems by transforming the organizations in which you invest wealth, work, & wisdom.

This isn’t a class about giving money. Instead, we’re examining a radical philosophy of giving, in many forms, applicable to anyone who wants the world to be a better place.

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.

Come learn from the experts at the Maine People’s Alliance and the Bet Ha’am Tikkun Council at our Advocacy Training day on January 27, 2019 from 12:15 to 2:30 PM. A delicious lunch will be provided.

At the training, we will have the opportunity to learn what works (and what doesn’t) in contacting legislators, writing letters to government, making phone calls, preparing legislative testimony, and more. As the new Maine legislative session gets under way, there will be a number of bills relating to our core issue of Immigrant Employment, as well as other important issues, that will benefit from public input. Having the Jewish voice heard loud and clear from the Bet Ha’am community will be vitally important as we support or oppose legislation and regulations that effect New Mainers in their efforts to become more secure in our community.

Please join us!

PHILANTHROPY RE-IMAGINED: A RADICAL APPROACH TO TIKKUN OLAM & GIFTS OF WEALTH, WORK, AND WISDOM – WITH BENJAMIN GORELICK AND OTHERS
Jan 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Monday evenings, January 28; Feb. 4, 11, 25 (No class on Feb. 18 – Presidents Day).
6:30 – 8:00 PM
Location: Congregation Bet Ha’am
Suggested tuition: $48
4 sessions
Enrollment: Minimum 10 /Max. 22
Registration deadline: Friday, January 18

Course Description: I’ve written three different course descriptions, and my wife keeps saying “It sounds like you’re going to hit people up for money. Also, what does Tikkun Olam have to do with philanthropy? I don’t see the connection.” That, of course, is the problem. Tikkun Olam and Philanthropy, if done right, are one in the same.

What does it mean to be a philanthropist? What do non-profits really need, to do their best work? This course will challenge the existing order of things, inspiring you, the giver, to solve big problems by transforming the organizations in which you invest wealth, work, & wisdom.

This isn’t a class about giving money. Instead, we’re examining a radical philosophy of giving, in many forms, applicable to anyone who wants the world to be a better place.
