K -- Q dessert and R -- Z bring a main dish. Beverages will be provided.
I will send an agenda as we get closer to the meeting.

Welcome to Bet Chaverim
We started off as "Community Synagogue Of South King County, CSSKC.
During a Sunday school session, a more traditional name was nominated.
We are a small, friendly Reform congregation located in Des Moines, Washington, between Seattle and Tacoma.
We serve the Jewish Community of South King and North Pierce Counties.
Since our founding in 1989, Bet Chaverim has been an inclusive community, welcoming a diverse membership.
We are made up of a range of ages, singles, married couples, and families. We are proud of our interfaith couples.
Although members generally live in South King and North Pierce Counties, others come from further away,
drawn by the quality of the services, the education we provide for children and adults, as well as the numerous social and cultural activities.
Our goal is to continue to build a Jewish community based on inclusiveness, and reflecting the congregation's belief in cooperation and mutual support.
We welcome and invite you.
========================This WEB page=========
At top banner are links to the Bet Chaverim Facebook page and:
Why is the Hebrew letter Shin at the top of every page?
We call this a Mezoogle. Your Mezoogle is an interactive virtual Mezuzah attached to the doorpost or gateway to your site and the pages and content within.
If you click on the Shin the Shemaprayer appears in a pop-up. According to Jewish tradition, a mezuzah is affixed to the doorframes in Jewish homes and places of occupancy.
This action fulfills the mitzvah to inscribe the words of the Shema "on the doorposts of your house”.
Your synagogue website is sacred space which now has a "cyber- mezuzah" attached to each and every page.
