Thanks for Honoring Jewish Life at “Zoom Gala Gala”

Zoom Gala Gala logo

Thank you for making Saturday, June 6th, 2020 a special and successful day

Donate to honor Jewish life!

We started with a slide show, about how we’ve come together as a community
A musical revue honored Rabbi Wolfe’s 25 years of service

Musical revue directed by Ariella Wolfe with music supervision by Dave Nachmanoff. Slides collected and arranged by Meryl Rappaport. Zoom Gala Gala produced & lead by Jodi Liederman.

It was a Party-on-the-Top and PJs-on-the-Bottom kind of night!  Fun for the whole family!


As you may know, our annual synagogue Gala was cancelled this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. However, without the Gala and the silent and live auctions, we could’ve remained $60,000 short of our annual goal. Not only is this amount critical in a “normal” year, but we are anticipating an even larger hole in our budget due to the financial impact of the crisis.

At times like these, we count on our community and rely on your generosity. You responded with over $72,000 of donations & pledges, to support our beloved clergy, staff, and teachers that hold us, inspire us, and teach us all year long.

Please join others to support everything you love about Congregation Bet Haverim by making a gift in an amount that is meaningful to you.


If you would like to pledge after the event, please go to our special donation page
