Shabbat Veteran's Day Service - Friday, November 10
Temple Beth Miriam invites you to join with members of Jersey Shore Post 125, Jewish War Veterans of the USA to honor all military veterans at our Shabbat Veteran’s Day Service, Friday, November 10 at 7:30 pm.  An Oneg sponsored by the Post will follow services. Of course, everyone is most welcome to attend.

Post 125  traces its origins to 1935 and has served veterans, their families, and the Monmouth County community since that time.
