Temple Bat Yam celebrates 30th anniversary
Ryan Summerlin January 17, 2013
Temple Bat Yam has had a home in South Lake Tahoe since 1983 and will be celebrating 30 years this summer.
What began as a small Jewish community, meeting in homes and celebrating holidays, later evolved to our temporary home in the Family Room of the Lake Tahoe Presbyterian Church, and in 1990 brought us to our current location on Pioneer Trail. Membership has remained steady at the lake and we have expanded our community to include the Carson Valley, Dayton and Reno. In addition, we open our doors to our visitors who come to enjoy beautiful Lake Tahoe and are happy to see an active Jewish community and a place to call home, while away from home.
We are excited to announce our plans to commemorate 30 years with a weekend of events, Aug. 16-18, 2013. We are calling this a homecoming in hopes to welcome back all who have been a part of our community. We invite the community at large to take part in our festivities. We are grateful for the support you have given us throughout the years, as well as look forward to our continued presence on the South Shore. Watch for a calendar of our events to be published in the months ahead.
