Social and Cultural Programs
The Program Committee plans social and educational events that are of interest to Jewish adults. Activities such as trips to museums in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.; guest speakers on Jewish, secular, political and Israeli topics; and musical concerts are just a few of the entertaining events offered throughout the year. In addition, the Board of Trustees sponsors a yearly casino night—a fun social event and fund-raiser. Check out all our upcoming events.
Casino Night: Join us Jan. 20 at 8 p.m. for our annual Las Vegas-style event. Gaming tables—Blackjack, Texas Hold 'Em, Craps, Roulette—a silent auction and prizes, along with a martini bar, heavy hors d'oeuvres and desserts round out what is always a fun-filled and eagerly anticipated evening. Tickets, which include $10,000 in playing chips, food and one drink ticket, are $40 in advance or $50 at the door. Game table sponsors get free admission tickets.
Tickets go on sale Jan. 2; to purchase tickets, call the Beth Sholom office at 301-663-3437.
The silent auction opens for bidding January 7. For more information and to view and bid on the auction items, to to http://bit.ly/2DZOrDU. Items are added frequently, so check back often to see what's new.
