A Storied Affair – Spring Gala Dinner and Reading

On April 28 at 6PM, Bet Ha’am will be hosting our annual fundraiser Gala Dinner, A Storied Affair.

Over an indulgent, five-course meal, you’ll be invited to enjoy the words of a few talented authors who are coming to share their works of short fiction, poetry, and essay. 

Reserve your seats here: https://bethaam.typeform.com/to/zmDTqj

Over the past 6 weeks, 53 Maine authors have submitted 71 unique written works.  From that group, we’ve selected some phenomenal works to share with you during one amazing, inspirational evening.  Over the next few weeks, you’ll be introduced to the authors and get a glimpse of the stories they’ll be sharing.

But today, for now, I’d like to share with you our menu for A Storied Affair:

  • Our appetizer course will be Ceviche, a citrus cured fish dish from Peru
  • Our soup course will be Zucchini and Potato Soup with Tarragon and Chevril
  • For a salad, we will be enjoying a Grilled Romaine Heart with a Mustard Thyme Dressing.
  • You will have a choice of main course:
    • Lamb with Mint Chimichurri with brown butter radishes
    • Filet Mignon with Balsamic Glaze and garlic smashed potatoes
    • Chicken with seasonal vegetables
    • Stuffed Kumra with Chickpeas and Kale and seasonal vegetables
  • For Dessert, we’re going to do something special: Our community provides so much sweetness and joy, and we thought there would be no better way for us to honor each other than by sharing desserts made by members of our community.

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.
