In the Jewish tradition, this special time of year is for renewal, reflection, and unity. In this spirit, our Temple Beth Am community comes together to worship, celebrate, and connect. We welcome everyone to be a part of our community and share in this time with us - whether you are a member, a guest, or someone new to TBA entirely.
For a look at our upcoming services for Sukkot and Simchat Torah, you can view them in our High Holy Days booklet here.
Friday, October 21
5:15 PM – Special Oneg
6:15 PM – Kabbalat
Temple Beth Am will be holding a memorable Shabbat experience during Sukkot, also known as “Z’man Simchateinu,” the time of our joyous celebration. During a special oneg, we will gather in the sukkah and Social Hall before services to greet Cantor Victor Geigner and his wife, Shirley; feast on savory treats and wine; and anticipate the joyful Kabbalat Shabbat Service for Sukkot that will include Cantor Geigner’s installation as Temple Beth Am’s first ordained chazzan.
In honor of Cantor Geigner’s installation, please join us in supporting local refugee families through TBA's Refugee Resettlement Task Force and the Interfaith and Intercultural Initiative. You can help by bringing a gift card to Cantor Geigner’s installation or sending one to TBA. Gift cards can be donated in any amount (write the amount on the gift card, please) to Visa Cash, Target, Fred Meyer, Walmart, or Dollar Store.
Please register by Wednesday, October 19. Members and guests can register by going to https://www.chaverweb.net/Congregant/SignUp.aspx?key=T23712060321&sid=3576. Then go to "Events" and choose "Simchat Sukkot." Please call the office at 206-525-0915 for any questions.
