  • Purim Together - A Festive Statewide Celebration

    February 25, 2021  6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

    Purim Together
    February 25 at 6:30 PM
    We could all use a little celebration! Get your costumes ready, grab a festive drink, and join us for Purim. There will be a spiel presented by Temple Beth El (the one in Augusta), a chance to share some unusual hamantaschen combinations, and a special challenge for our local clergy (shhh....it's a surprise). As part of the fun we'll invite you to send in a picture of yourself modeling your Purim costumes; we'll string the images together into a video. Serious prizes will be awarded. More details to come! 
    But wait, there's more. We'll also have a traditional reading of the megillah, so get out your groggers and make some noise! 
    Half of all donations for this program will go to support Maine’s Good Shepherd Food Bank, feeding the hungry in our state. It’s an easy opportunity to fulfill the Purim mitzvah of providing gifts for the needy.
    To receive Zoom details, please register below. After you sign up, you’ll receive a confirmation email with the program link.

  • Zoom Community-Building Workshop 3 with Asherah Cinnamon

    March 1, 2021  6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

    Bet Ha’am Zoom Community-Building Workshop 3

    Our relationships are enriched by personal sharing. Open to new as well as previous participants. Congregant Asherah Cinnamon, with assistance from her team of local facilitators, is pleased to offer another community-building workshop on Zoom for Bet Ha'am members. This will be a participatory group (not a discussion or debate) designed to strengthen our connections with each other. Asherah will open with Introductions and with a brief talk on “What is internalized Anti-Semitism, and How Might It Impact You and Yours?”

    This is an opportunity for adults to express the personal impact of current events, including COVID-19, the rise in visibility of anti-Semitism and racism, and the tensions of politics in families and communities. In large and small listening circles, each participant has an equal opportunity to be respectfully listened to.

    Asherah is a trained facilitator with decades of experience bringing people together. Her bio may be found on her website at www.asherahcinnamon.com.

    Please register by Friday, February 26 at 12:00 Noon. Please register each person in your household who plans to participate, preferably on a separate device. Contact the Bet Ha'am office for more information.

    Please contact Asherah directly by email at acinnamon@meca.edu with questions. The Zoom link will come from Asherah's email before the event.
