Beit Cafe May 2, 2015

Congregation Beth Israel’s First Ever Beit Cafe (Coffee House) is planned for May 2, 2015.
Storytelling will be the theme of our Beit Cafe. In the spirit of “The Moth” and other storytelling venues, get ready to cry, laugh and be amazed while listening to Jewish themed personal stories from fellow Beth Israelites.
We are lucky to be hosting this event at Mount Baker Theatre’s Encore Room. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the show will begin soon afterwards.
The event will include a no-host bar, appetizers, desserts, coffee and teas and table games. Suggested donation: $5.
