Shop ’til you drop at annual Chanukah Bazaar Nov. 14

Given a choice of whether to go to the mall and walk from one end to the other to get your holiday shopping done or come to one of the premiere holiday bazaars in South Florida, how can you not choose Temple Beth Am’s 12th annual Chanukah & Holiday Bazaar.

This year, the bazaar will be on Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 11a.m.-6:30 p.m. at Temple Beth Am, 5950 N. Kendall Drive, in the beautiful ballroom. Entrance is free and the bazaar is open to the public.

Proceeds benefit the Youth Scholarship Fund. If you want to support youth through scholarships that give young people incredible educational experiences that they would not be able to otherwise have, come down and shop. Through this scholarship program, young people can participate in programs all over the country that enhance their spiritual and secular knowledge. We are also able to offer expanded programming and improved resources.

Our high school age Temple Youth Group, BAFTY (Beth Am Federation of Temple Youth) teens will sell baked goods and be available to meet and greet temple members and visitors. BAFTY is a solid teen driven youth group that takes great initiative throughout the year, meeting weekly and creating their own programs, often with considerable degrees of social responsibility, and a responsive relationship to the world they are inheriting.

There will be a wide variety of vendors selling jewelry, handbags, belts, Judaica, handmade hair accessories, children’s clothing, women’s apparel, personalized custom items and gifts, travel accessories, invitations, sports memorabilia and many other things.

Each year the bazaar is a flurry of activity and this year will be even bigger and better than before. Why not plan a day with your friends to come to Temple Beth Am and shop ’til you drop. We have added a Children’s Corner that has been a huge success and will be expanded this year. All items are under $5, which will allow children to shop for family and friends without breaking their piggy banks. Here the children learn that it is just as good to give as it is to receive.

There is ample parking for hundreds of cars, so please plan on joining us. You will be glad you did!
