It’s time for Beth Ami to get in the spirit of Yom Ha Atzma’ut – Israeli Independence Day – and enjoy entertainment, music, and food in celebration of this festive holiday! Our “Beit Café” coffee house follows BOTH 6:30 pm services (K-2 primary AND Erev Shabbat Service) and will be full of surprises for all of the senses – including Israeli music (courtesy of The ShabbaTones), a sweet and savory Israeli buffet and much more! NOTE: There will be NO 7:30 pm Service on Friday night, 4/24, so that everyone can celebrate Yom Ha Atzma’ut together at 7:15 pm.
Israeli Movie Monday Monday, April 27 at 10:30 am
Join Lior for a free screening of “Halfon Hill Doesn’t Answer,” a cult Israeli comedy produced in 1976. This film is a good-hearted satire of the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) which tells the story of a reserves company watching the Egyptian border in Sinai. The name of the film is a parody of an Israeli patriotic film, “Hill 24 Doesn’t Answer.”

Temple Beth Ami is proud to co-host, along with the Washington Society for Jewish Deaf, a screening of “Lost and Sound” (Documentary, 2012, UK). 1 in 7 of us will experience some kind of deafness in our lifetime. So, what would happen to the music you love, if your hearing was lost? Made by a partially deaf filmmaker after the future of her own hearing was called into doubt, Lost and Sound is a moving and fascinating documentary that follows a music critic, dancer and pianist over 2 years as they journey deep into sound and silence to rediscover music after deafness. We will be joined by a panelist of members of the Association of Adult Musicians with Hearing Loss to answer questions following the film. No charge.
