Purchase Chanukah Candles and Support HIAS
Beth Am's Youth Education programs have made a commitment to support the work of the the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), a Jewish American nonprofit organization that provides humanitarian aid and assistance to refugees. Each grade is learning about refugees and we are in active partnership with HIAS, originally established in 1881 to aid Jewish refugees. Our partnership also involves a financial commitment and to help fulfill that committment, Beth Am is selling Chanukah candles.
All proceeds from these candles will go directly to HIAS, which is working with people whose lives and freedom are believed to be at risk due to war, persecution or violence. The candles are colorful, beautiful (these are not the ones you find at the supermarket) and will look great in your chanukiyah. Each pack of candles costs $10. Place your candle order online by Sunday, December 15 (or our supply is exhausted), then pick then up:
- Monday, December 16 to Friday, December 20, between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM at the Beth Am education office
- Sunday, December 22 between 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM outside the Sanctuary
Payment* can be made upon pickup with cash or by check made out to "Congregation Beth Am." Email Alex for more information.
*These candles are NOT tax deductible.
