JAMTY Cafe

JAMTY Cafe is hosted by HaMakom's high school youth group, JAMTY, to raise money for their scholarship fund to help send them to events and conventions throughout the year. They oversee the operations of the cafe and assist with the accounting each week.

JAMTY Cafe is open 30 minutes before the start of classes on Sundays (9:00am – 9:30am) and Tuesdays (4:30pm – 5:00pm). On Sundays, we feature bagels, muffins, and assorted beverages and on Tuesdays, we serve pizza and snacks.

For $25, you can get a discount card for your students that saves you 50 cents/item. They are valid for any food or drink purchase on both Sunday and Tuesdays!

100% of the proceeds go back to our teens!

If anyone 8th grade and older is interested in volunteering on a Sunday or Tuesday to run JAMTY Café, please let us know here!

College Connection

We need your college student's address! The College Connection program gives Temple Beth Am the opportunity to send out surprise holiday packages throughout the year to our college students. This is a wonderful way to let them know that their family and congregation are thinking of them and allows the students to maintain a strong connection to their Judaism. The packages will be sent out three times every year that your child is in college in time for Rosh Hashanah, Hanukkah, and Passover! Please email Brandon Gabay if you'd like to participate. Deadline is August 25, 2023.
