After many months, and much hard work, we are honored that Temple Beth Ami is the first house of worship in Santa Clarita to host the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA.) DBSA reaches hundreds of people in a safe and supportive environment. Since this summer, SCV has a group as well. We are grateful to the amazing people at NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness), the DBSA and some remarkable members of the TBA community that made sure this project came to realization. Since the meetings started we have been amazed at the outpouring of gratitude from those who participate in the group.

As we begin the year 5777, we look out to the unknown and our mind fills with more questions and uncertainty. On one thing you can be rest assured –Temple Beth Ami continues to be a source of strength to Santa Clarita and beyond. We have multiple 12 Step meetings each and every week at our facility including AA, Alanon and OA. We continue to house homeless families this year as part of Family Promise, and nearly had a child born at TBA during her parents stay. Our facility, though small on size, has a huge impact. Temple Beth Ami is proud to be at the forefront of support in our community, we are honored to have our doors open to all.
Please keep Temple Beth Ami in mind as you start the new year: www.templebethami.org/support-tba.html. Your generosity has helped us come so far, enabled us to help so many and we know we will be there for challenges in the future.
This year Temple Beth Ami begins the celebration of its first 30 years! Great events are being planned throughout the next 12 months and we hope you will a find a way to join us in the festivities. Whatever this year holds for us as a community, a people and a nation, we will all be better off meeting the challenges and opportunities ahead together. May 5777 be a more peaceful and successful one than the one that just passed. Peace, Health and Blessings to all of you.
