Welcome to this week's E-lijah
Elijah for September 22, 2019
Selichot is the official beginning of the Days of Awe period.  You are invited to join Rabbi and Stella Stanway at their home on September 21 at 7 PM (or 6:30 if you want to come early and schmooze) as we share a meal together, courtesy of Stella Stanway, share a bonfire, have a short service of reflection with Rabbi Stanway and Cantor Camhi and share our hopes and visions for 5780.  Everyone is invited.  Call the temple for the Rabbi's address at 732-222-3754.  
Tzedakah for the Bahamas

We have all seen the horrible pictures from the Bahamas.  So many people lost everything.  The damage was total in so many case and so many lost their lives.  To respond to this, many organizations have set up collections.  Beth Miriam is collecting any money you wish to donate and Rabbi Stanway will send everything collected to the Tzedakah Fund for the next month to one of the organizations.  We will send it in the temple's name.  Please send your check to the temple between now and October 20th and we will take it from there.
Family Affair is reaching out to all of our Temple Beth Miriam congregants to make sure that any member who has difficulty with transportation for the High Holidays, will be helped with a ride.

Any congregants in need of transportation, or volunteers who would like to provide a ride, please contact Lori Goldstein at lgoldstein83@verizon.net, or the Temple office by September 23rd. Please specify Erev Rosh Hashana, Rosh Hashana morning, Erev Yom Kippur, Yom Kippur morning or afternoon.
