Learn to use the AED

As you may know, the temple has a defibrillator which, thank God, we have never had to use.  However, we are offering a free tutorial on how to use it should you ever find yourself in need of applying the life-saving electric shock to someone whose heart is in danger here at the temple.  On September 26 at 7:30, right before the board meeting, Tim Knotts, one of our congregants and a certified EMT will demonstrate the AED.  Everyone is welcome to learn how to use the machine.  The demonstration will take about 20 minutes. 

Join the temple community as we prepare for the Days of Awe.  Our first service is a service of preparation called Selichot which means 'Forgiveness'.  Selichot will take place on September 24 at 8:15 pm and we will begin with Havdallah, have an informal short service of reflection, continue with refreshments, a movie with the theme of change and growth and end with a discussion about some of the movie's themes.  This is a very moving and beautiful ceremony enhanced by the music of Cantor Camhi, a creative service, fantastic and creative refreshments prepared by Stella Stanway, the feeling of community and the reflections of the Days of Awe.  There is no charge, of course, and you are welcome to bring a friend.  PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE COMING BY CALLING THE TEMPLE AT 732-222-3754
Pictures Needed!

Do you have a great picture of a temple activity - a simcha, a wedding, an event, a special moment? - that captures just the right instance in time?  We are in the process of redesigning the temple website (and the tentative unveil date is mid October) and are looking for pictures of temple events.  All pictures will be considered (although not necessarily chosen) to be featured on the headers of the various pages.  Please send them in digital form to rabbi@bethmiriam.org or drop them off on a thumb drive or CD by October 5.  Thanks!
The Men's Club is having a fundraiser with RHHoney.  You can order an 8 oz. bottle of  honey, send it with a personalized message, and help support our TBM Men's Club.  There is no shipping or handling.

Go to RHHoney.com.  Enter TBMhoney when it asks for our "coupon".  The price is $12 dollars a jar.  The Men's Club is using this to spread Rosh Hashanna joy and as a fundraiser so buy lots of jars!
Thank you!

Many thanks to Sam and Ivee Fromkin who donated the resources to get the beautiful Beth Miriam signs in the front of the temple even more beautiful.  Thank you so much!
The summer is coming to an end and the Yankees and the Mets haven't exactly knocked it out of the park.  However our TBM softball team is still undefeated at 1 - 0.  I need players.  ALL PLAYERS.

Our next game is Sunday, September 18 at 9am.  The location is going to be Fireman's Field in Oakhurst (take West Park to Larkin Place).

Please RSVP to me, Barry Edison, at 732-233-7274 or email at eyedocbarry@gmail.com.

Rabbi Cy Stanway and the Programming Committee invite you to join them for another in the series of Breakfast with Rabbi Cy featuring Joe Grabas, a noted expert in land titles and real estate matters who will speak about “Do Not Be Wise in Words, be wise in Deeds: Jewish Landholdings at the Jersey Shore”.
