Caps For A Cure is a project that was started by Rebekah Davis, daughter of Beth & Andy Davis, to honor her grandfather, Richard, who fought cancer and won, and also in memory of her grandmother, Pat, who lost her battle with cancer less than two weeks after diagnosis.
Caps are being knitted for kids with cancer so that they will feel cared for and money is also raised for The American Cancer Society to help find a cure for cancer.
As young Jewish citizens who value community, responsibility and knowledge, we can continue our commitment to help to repair the world through acts of giving.
Temple Beth Am is supporting a Teen Tzedaka group for all teenage students. This act of tzedaka provides a wonderful opportunity for us, as Jewish youth, to engage in a discussion about the needs in our community and throughout the world.
As a group, we can make substantial contributions to various causes and organizations. This also is a perfect venue for us to confirm our dedication to service and receive community service hours. Watch for a Teen Tzedaka letter in your mailbox.

Habitat for Humanity
Volunteers from Temple Beth Am have joined various Miami-Dade congregations at one of Habitat for Humanity's building sites in Miami-Dade County.
We are proud to have helped build homes for Habitat of Miami, which is responsible for building many hundreds of houses in Miami-Dade over the past 15 years. Habitat also provides no-interest loans to its homeowners to help build community.
