THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS:
Machane TBA held a drive this year to collect supplies needed for families and children in Child Welfare Services.   TBAHigh students put these supplies together into 120 kits to help support vulnerable children and families.   Thank you to all of our Machane TBA families who supported this program by donating. The grade with the highest percentage of participation will be announced on Tuesday, April 5!

TEMPLE BETH AMI BRICK CAMPAIGN:
This is a rare opportunity to show your support for Temple Beth Ami and leave your permanent mark.  Make a donation of $180 or $360 and your personalized engraved brick will become part of the new entryway planned for our main synagogue entrance this year.   Commemorate special milestone events such as births, Bar/Bat mitzvahs, confirmations, graduations, or other simchas.  The D’Alessio family will generously match $100 for every member family’s brick donation!   More information
