Don't Miss Beth Am's Adult Purim Celebration
Groggers! Hamentaschen! The Megillah! Do they spark joy? Of course they do! Join the Beth Am community for our annual adult Purim extravaganza!

- Hear the Megillah read by our fantastic clergy and lay chanters!
- Enjoy a festive meal (well, there will be snacks and drinks)
- Mishloach manot (sending gifts to friends)
- Gifts for the poor: donate to this year’s Purim tzedakah project (details to come)

Costumes strongly encouraged! Suggested donation: $20 per person (all donations will support Beth Am teen programs).
**Purim Tzedakah Drive: One of the mitzvot of Purim is giving matanot la’evyonim (gifts to the poor). This year, Beth Am has TWO Purim tzedakah recipients (collection bins are located for both in the Sanctuary Foyer and Main Office):
- We are collecting new or gently used bras (in good shape only) to give to Be A Dear and Donate a Brassiere, a nonprofit organization started in 2009 which has donated over 10,000 bras to local Bay Area homeless shelters. Bra donations should have all hooks working, no stains or pulled elastic. Diverse sizes needed.
- We are collecting school supplies to donate to Haven Family House, a Menlo Park location of LifeMoves. This project is coordinated through BAJY (Beth Am Junior Youth), who has organized the collection. Here is a suggested items listing.
$1 discount off admission for every item you bring to donate to one of our tzedakah recipients.
