Marsha Massey
Head Librarian

just click on the books!
We have a wonderful library at Temple Beth Am, which is available to the students of our Religious School as well as to our Membership at large.

Library
READING IS A MITZVAH WE DO FOR OURSELVES
This is the theme of this year's Library reading incentive program for the students of the Religious School. The fun begins when students check out books and then sign their names on colorful patches shaped like dreidels, stars of David, rectangles, flowers, hamantaschen, etc. The patches have been used to create a paper quilt of many colors. This was accomplished with such speed, that a second mitzvah quilt is in the works. The completed quilt can be viewed on the bulletin board, as you enter the Library.

Lifelong Learning At Temple Beth Am
Register Today For All New & Exciting Programs!
 

Open To The Community
Adult learning at Temple Beth Am takes many forms.

The goals of our Lifelong Learning program are to serve our congregation's thirst for knowledge, while providing educational opportunities for Jewish adults throughout Metrowest. Join us on this exciting path that will enrich your entire Jewish experience. The possibilities are endless!

Every fall and spring, a variety of courses are offered through our Lifelong Learning Committee

(formerly known as Adult Education). Cantor Schechtman, Sue Summit and Rabbi Splansky teach Lifelong Learning classes on a myriad of Jewish subjects, and guest instructors are brought in to teach in their area of specialization.
This year, through a grant we have received from the MetroWest Jewish Community Fund, we are thrilled to bring you the following courses, available to members and nonmembers alike from the MetroWest area. You can register by mail or contact the office at 508-872-2260.

Fundraising Opportunities
Raise Money for TBA
While Doing Your Every Day Shopping!
 

Buy Your Scrip Cards Today!
Scrip is a powerful fundraising tool because families generate revenue through purchases they would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with gift cards. It is fundraising while you shop---without spending an additional penny.

With scrip fundraising (gift cards) , you simply do your regular weekly shopping with gift cards from America's favorite retailers. With each purchase, Temple Beth Am earns cash rebates that can quickly add up to tens of thousands of dollars a year.

Need gift ideas for the holidays? Click here

Here's something to think about: An organization of 150 families easily spends between one and two million dollars a year on these purchases. If we, the members of TBA, do the majority of this shopping with Scrip, we can raise as much as $40,000 to $80,000 per year, if not more!

Return the order form (Click Here For Your Scrip Order Form) and check to Ellen in the office by the due date (usually the first Tuesday of each month). Pick up your order the following Monday. It is that easy. Please help support your Temple Beth Am.

For details and more information, contact Stu Sheinhait or call the temple office at 508-872-8300.

 
 
 

Stop & Shop Gift Cards
TBA is currently selling $25, $50 and $100 Stop & Shop gift cards.

The cards are purchased for face value, and 5% of each card purchased is donated to TBA. This is an easy way for the temple to raise monies at no additional cost to you.

Be sure to stop by the temple office to purchase as many cards as you want for yourself, for your college student, or as a gift for someone. Payment must be made at the time of purchase.

If you have any questions, please contact the temple office at 508-872-8300. Thank you for supporting Temple Beth Am!
