Please join Temple Beth Am in Pinecrest for the dedication of a new chuppah and the opportunity to meet Anita Diamant. The theme for this special event on March 22, 2013 is “Shabbat Under the Canopy”. This evening will be a lively spirited celebration.
In Jewish tradition, a chuppah is a canopy, under which a couple stand during their wedding ceremony. As a gift of the heart, a dedicated group of women at Temple Beth Am have created a custom-designed handcrafted chuppah. It symbolizes a home that the couple will build together, a place that is welcoming and secure.
Anita Diamant is a prizewinning journalist and author of numerous books about contemporary Jewish practice, as well as four bestselling novels, including “The Red Tent”. A woman for our times, Anita will be the Temple’s special guest, courtesy of the Dr. Morton M. Axler Speaker Series and the temple’s Sisterhood. Following a festive dinner, Anita Diamant will share her thoughts in a personal, free-form conversation hosted by the Synagogue’s own Rabbi Judith Kempler.
The public is invited to attend. The service begins at 6:00 p.m and is free. Dinner at 7:30 p.m requires a reservation and costs $20 per person.
Sponsorships are available for Wine & Cheese reception with Ms. Diamant at 5:00 p.m. All information is available at www.tbam.org/shabbatcanopy or by calling (305) 667-6667 ext. 149.
