Welcome to Temple Beth Miriam דף הבית ברוכים הבאים לבית מרים





Beth Miriam is a Reform synagogue filled with tradition as well as creativity.  We are about creating a truly holy space for everyone who comes into our Mishkan – the place where God dwells.  This is a place where you can pray, sing, be intellectually and spiritually stimulated, engaged with the community and with Israel.  Ours is a place of joy and support and sharing.  Traditional families, LGBTQ persons, interfaith families and partners, singles and anyone interested in finding a sanctuary will be welcome.  We are authentically warm and our holy space is always sincere.

We will be watching the Documentary film When Jews Were Funny. It is discusses how Jewish humor has evolved over the past century.  It is a wonderful documentary and you are bound to see some old ‘friends’ with whom you laughed.

Library Rejuvenation Continues – Help Prepare the Room
The Men’s Club will be having our second phase of The Library Rejuvenation on March 6th.  Please email me so we can know how many people are coming.  The library is getting a makeover and it is being transformed into a multi-purpose room and library.  It is an exciting project but we need help with old books.  And speaking of old books, there is a table in the temple foyer filled with books.  Feel free to take what you like and, if you wish, put a dollar in the pushke for tzedakah.  Take as many as you wish.

Purim Baskets are Coming!

Purim begins on March 23rd. Temple Beth Miriam will continue the custom of fulfilling the Purim mitzvah of Misloach Manot, the tradition of giving friends and family yummy gifts to spread the joy of the holiday. The Purim baskets for temple members will remain the same at $4.00 each.

In mid-January, you will receive an order form and a two-sided list of temple members, staff, and teachers. Please check off the names of people you wish to give Purim baskets to and send the form and list back to the temple by February 16, 2016 with your full payment. You may donate your basket, give baskets to non-temple members ($15.00 each), and reciprocate with other temple members, as described in the letter.

You don’t want to miss out on being a part of this wonderful tradition and donating to the temple at the same time
