On Sunday, February 5, 40 new students stood under our extra large chuppah held by grandparents during the Kindergarten and other new student Consecration. What a fabulous memory for these kids, their parents, their grandparents, and our congregation! Consecration is the celebratory welcoming ceremony for children and their families. These new students will begin their Jewish education journey at Temple Beth Am and in just a handful of years, will become B’nei Mitzvah and go on to lead active lives in the Jewish community. Great things are always happening at HaMakom Religious School at Temple Beth Am.
