Annual Gala 2018

“MORE THAN A SYNAGOGUE AND SCHOOL, A SACRED COMMUNITY. FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION!”

 

Temple Beth Emet and Beth Emet School join together to host our Annual Gala Fundraiser. We invite you to participate in this magnificent event, which will include over 300 guests comprised of TBE members, parents, teachers, staff and community. This year our theme is “All you need is Love”, boasting a far out 70's cocktail hour, plated 3 course dinner, silent auction, a concert with Beatles tribute band, “BEATLEMANIAX”, and endless fun.
