Like many other groups in Ann Arbor, WTBE wondered what could be done to make a difference in our community during these unprecedented times we are living in. It was decided that we would welcome the stranger, provide comfort and make a house a home.

Starting on 02/01/2018 the Women of Temple Beth Emeth will officially begin an ambitious project: Furnish a home for a refugee family. A home filled with new furniture, sheets, towels, flatware, dishes and cookware of their own, plus so much more.

WTBE will solicit the funds to purchase all of the items on the *JFS/HIAS list of required items (**see link below).

Here are some of the ways that you can help:

-Sponsor an item from the JFS/HIAS list, we will have a registry available soon.
– Join with your family, neighbors and friends to co-sponsor a “BIG TICKET” item.
– Sponsor an item in honor of a loved one.
– Sponsor as a gift to the person who has everything, we will even send them a note!.
– Any gift large or small will help.
– Make a monetary donation at
