Beth Miriam is a Reform synagogue where we seek to nurture the Jewish life of all of our congregants, young and old, in times of distress and in moments of joy. We are steadfast in our commitment to תיקון עולם (tikkun olam/social justice) in the greater world around us and in Israel, and we seek to strengthen our ties of love and loyalty with Israel in all arenas. We embrace all Jews, showing warmth, love and equality to all. We show love and equality to all genders, races, gay and straight families and individuals, marital and parental statuses of every Jewish person. We also welcome the interfaith family to our congregation openly and lovingly.
SOUTHERN FRIED SHABBAT AND RAFFLE THIS WEEKEND!
The wonderful end of the summer Southern Fried Shabbat (which also has non-fried chicken!) is rapidly approaching. If you haven’t signed up, you really should. We want to have enough chicken and there are already 110 people signed up. You won’t want to miss a bit of delicious chicken now, do you?
Also, the raffle will be held on Friday. Send in your stubs and your check or you can buy some tickets ($5 each) on Friday. Don’t worry – Bob Kellert will find you!
And have you see the weather on Friday? Wow – just wow
SPECIAL SECTION: DAYS OF AWE 2015/5776
NEW AMIDAH NUSACH
We are continuing the evolution of the High Holiday music we started a couple of years ago with the introduction of the High Holiday nusach and patterns. This year, we will be introducing, among other shorter nusachot, the High Holiday Amidah. Here is a video of it so you can have a chance to learn it.
HIGH HOLIDAY YISKOR BOOK
With the High Holidays almost here, now is a good time to check the Yiskor book from last year to make sure it is up to date. We want to make sure that your family’s entry is exactly right. Shortly, you will be receiving the mailing from the temple to made any additions or emendations. You may see your family’s entries at this link.
KOL NIDRE AND EREV ROSH HASHANNA TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE
Last year Beth Miriam opened up its doors to guests to share Erev Rosh Hashanna with the community. This year we are doing the same for both Erev Rosh Hashanna and Erev Yom Kippur.
