The evening will begin with a festive dinner. Then, the sights and sounds of summer will enhance our worship.


Please bring your own brown bag dinner and carry-away your trash.


In the event of mild inclement weather, we will proceed with our service and picnic at Fort Williams. In the event of severe inclement weather (driving down rain/thunder/lightning), we will cancel our service and picnic for the evening. We will make a final weather determination at 2:00 PM on Friday. If you are unsure, please check the Bet Ha’am outgoing phone message after 2:00 PM for updates.

Follow the road up the hill and over the other side to the stop sign. Turn right. The entrance to the Picnic Shelter parking lot will be on the right.
