Our HaLayla HaGadol Big Night Fundraiser is big enough to spill into an added weekend. Our congregants, inspired by the film “The Big Night,” are hosting these tasty get-togethers to celebrate good food, fun and friendship, and to raise money for maintenance of Beth Ami.

Select a venue and quickly send your RSVP and payment to the Beth Ami office. Last minute RSVPs are not a good idea for this event.
