Shabbat Across Bet Ha’am

This summer, we’d like every family at Bet Ha’am, all 350 of you, to have dinner with another family you’ve not met before. We realized that our community is huge, and connecting everyone together can be a challenge. So we’re solving it in the best way possible: food!

Shabbat Across Bet Ha’am is a Membership Committee initiative to bring members of our community together for Shabbat Dinner throughout the summer.

Right now, you can register to host an evening for 2-6 guests. All you need is a table, a smile, and a desire to meet someone new. You can cook, you can organize a potluck, you can order out, you can ask your guests to bring items. Just have someone over…

Once you register, we’ll help you send out dinner invitations to member families, give you tips for hosting a successful Shabbat meal, and anything else we can do to make your evening successful.

You can register to host an evening here>> or email membership@bethaam.org for more information. Please consider hosting!

If you’re feeling nervous about some of the prayers or rituals, don’t be.  Here’s some resources to help you out:

The prayer for the lighting of the Shabbat Candles, sung by Rabbi Saks>> and some info about the candle lighting ceremony>>.

The Kiddush (the prayer for the wine), sung by our very own Rachel Stamieszkin>> and some info about the Kiddush>>.

Significance of Challah and how to say the prayer>>

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.
