Days of Awe at Beth Miriam
Welcome to Temple Beth Miriam for these Days of Awe.  We are creating an atmosphere of holiness and love and respect and teshuvah and you are most welcome to be a part of it.  Join us for the many services open to all.  Use this link to hear about it and check out the temple website for details.
There is a new machzor at Beth Miriam.  It is unlike any machzor you have used before and the Religious Practices Committee, Rabbi Stanway and Cantor Camhi are excited to be bringing it to you.  Listen to Rabbi Stanway share some of his thoughts about it.  Use this link to see the video

Cantor Camhi introduces how we are going to share music for the High Holidays this year.  There are the customary and familiar songs and the new and groundbreaking.  Take a listen at this link.
The Days of Awe videos were created and produced by TwoRiverPictures and donated by Garrett Bess, owner of TwoRiverPictures.  Beth Miriam is grateful for his generosity and dedication to this project and we offer thanks to him and his incredible staff.
As the unofficial end of summer approaches and we gear up for the High Holidays, lets play softball…..

Our last game Men’s Club game of the season against Monmouth Reform is Sunday, September 17 at 9am. The game is at Oakhurst Fireman’s Field.

Please let me know if you can play.

We Listened!
And we are happy to share with you the first two initiatives that emerged from our Listening Campaign.

After examining all of the data from our project, a group of themes emerged. We decided to focus on the areas that resonated with the most congregants.

Many people shared a passion for social justice. They would like to band together and use their collective voice to impact social issues. Judy Berg will be organizing a meeting of the congregants who expressed an interest on Sunday, October 22 at 10:30 (PLEASE NOTE THE SLIGHT TIME CHANGE!!!) at the temple. Of course, every congregant is welcome to attend, even if he or she did not participate in the Listening Campaign home meetings. If you plan on attending, please email Judy at

Many congregants shared a desire to nurture our temple and greater community through food. This may include a cooking class, or providing meals to our congregants. Lori Goldstein will be organizing a meeting on Sunday, September 17th at 9:15 (NOTE THE TIME CHANGE) at the temple. If you plan on attending the meeting, please email Lori at

We felt that these themes would be a good place to begin. If the groups work well and the participants find them meaningful, we can tackle other themes that were shared at the home meetings.
10 AM - 11:30

Join us for 'The High Holidays Together,' our program for young children. We will celebrate the New Year in a friendly and warm way.  Bring your young children for music, dancing, food, and a special Rosh Hashanna/Yom Kippur Arts and Crafts program.  Everyone is most welcome.
