Gift of Life Yom Kippur Bone Marrow Registry Drive

On Yom Kippur (Saturday, October 4), TBA will be joining Jewish communities across the country to add potential donors to the Bone Marrow Registry. Registration is simple and free; it requires a quick cheek swab and a consent form. The entire process is painless (guaranteed) and takes less than 10 minutes!

We not only need donors but also volunteers to help us. Go here for details on the drive and who you can contact to volunteer.


Prep for Sukkot
Decorate TBA's Sukkah: Sunday, October 5 / Noon

To decorate our sukkah, don't forget to save some of your gleanings for TBA! We need greenery such as pampas or grass fronds, pumpkins and gourds, and corn stalks and sunflower stalks. You can help us decorate on Sunday, October 5 starting at noon.


Sukkot Service and Dinner
Wednesday, October 8 / Services at 6:00 PM

The entire congregation is invited to the Sukkot festival services which start our week-long holiday, and then to dinner in TBA’s sukkah: delicious pasta dishes, green salad, fresh baked desserts, and more! Cheese pizza available for children; non-dairy and gluten-free options are available by request.

$10 for adults; $5 for children ages 3-12. Free for children 2 and under.

Go here to register for dinner and for more information about all of our Sukkot activies and services.


10th Annual Simchat Sukkot
Saturday, October 11 / 7:30 PM

For our 10th Annual Simchat Sukkot Benefit for our Homeless to Rentor (H2R) program, we have planned something a little different: not only wine, light refreshments, and music by The Klez Katz, but also a video featuring H2R parents who share their stories on how H2R makes a difference to them and their children.

Adult Education Programs

Our Adult Ed classes, discussions, and lectures are beginning for the new year! Included are Hebrew for Adults, Adult Yiddish, Sunday Morning Forums, Torah study, and the return of our popular Jewish Composers series.

We are also starting our Introduction to Judaism classes with our rabbis, perfect for for adults interested in exploring Judaism or those interested in conversion.


Sinchat Torah
Wednesday, October 15 / 7:00 PM

Simchat Torah is, as the name states, a time to rejoice in the Torah. This year you can gather with your community, dance with our Torahs while the KlezKidz play lively tunes, and at the end of the evening we have root beer floats for everyone!

Go here for all of the details.


TBA House Parties
October - February

We invite you to welcome Rabbi Ruth Zlotnick as our new Senior Rabbi by joining her, and connecting with other Temple Beth Am members, in intimate gatherings at congregants’ homes in and around Seattle.

While you will have many opportunities to see her at TBA throughout the year, Rabbi Ruth is eager to meet each of you in smaller settings; during each house party she will also facilitate a discussion about what we want Temple Beth Am to be. This is a great way to spend quality, casual time with Rabbi Ruth and your fellow congregants outside of TBA.

Go here for details and to register.


TBA Senior Rides Program

Open to all seniors, to allow you to participate in evening programs at TBA, our Senior Rides Program is intended for people who have been unable to participate in activities at our synagogue because they do not have access to transportation or do not feel comfortable driving at night.

Go to our Seniors page for more info.
