Temple Beth Miriam E-lijah for October 16

The TBM Nominating Committee Needs You!

Each year, a nominating committee is formed to re-nominate board members whose terms are expiring, and to nominate new members to the board of trustees of Temple Beth Miriam.  The nominating committee is composed of 5 members; (3) are existing board members, and (2) are members of the temple community in good standing.  There will be two meetings, at least one of which will be via Zoom. The goal is to come up with potential board members to lead TBM and provide the guidance necessary to remain relevant during these changing times.  

A meeting date has not yet been scheduled, but will occur during the month of October.  
If you are interested in serving on the committee, or being considered to join the board, please contact:

Mazal Tov

Aria Sage Harkavy will become Bat Mitzvah on October 17.  Aria lives in W. Long Branch with her parents and old sister Jolie and is a 7th grader at the Frank Antonides Middle School.  She is a member of the National Junior Honor Society as well as the Academic Talented Program.  Aria keeps very busy after school as well.  She has played for the Field Hockey team and has been on the Cheerleading Squad.  Aria is also on the student council.  For Aria's Kishrei HaLev program, she is a founding member of an organization called 'Fleur Once More.'  It mission is to repurpose flowers that would have otherwise been discarded and deliver them to people who could use a little sunshine in their lives.  Flowers are collected from local florists and event halls instead of being discarded.  Bouquets are created from these flowers in vases collected from vase drives in school, in town and from Facebook.  And, most importantly, these bouquets are delived to people in nursing homes and long-term care facilities.  The flowers brighten up the room but the idea that someone took the time to show a little kindness really lifts up their spirits.  

Mazal tov, Aria
