Advocacy Training Day 
with Maine People’s Alliance and the Bet Ha’am Tikkun Olam Council
January 27, 12:15  – 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, Bet Ha’am member Senator Cathy Breen, and the Bet Ha’am Tikkun Olam 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 RSVP to Karen at karen@bethaam.org by Wednesday, January 16.

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.
