TBM Listens
Share Your Voice During Our Small Group Meetings
 
 
 
 
Our listening campaign is well under way. To date, almost 100 congregants have participated in our small group meetings. TBM Listens is designed to take the pulse of our congregation by bringing our diverse voices together, learning about each other, deepening our sense of community, and discovering our common interests and concerns.

   We are in the process of scheduling get togethers for January and February. At each meeting of ten or so congregants, a few predetermined questions will be asked to help us better understand our members.  We need your help to nurture and support our community. Please contact Lori Goldstein at lgoldstein83@verizon.net or 732-239-2146 to participate as a meeting guest, or with any questions about TBM Listens.

TORAH PORTION STUDY OF THE WEEK. 
SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 11 AM
 
 
 
 
 
Purim is Coming!

Purim begins on the evening of March 11th. Temple Beth Miriam will continue the custom of fulfilling the Purim mitzvah of Misloach Manot, the tradition of giving friends and family yummy gifts to spread the joy of the holiday. The Purim baskets for temple members will remain the same at $4.00 each.

You will receive a letter of explanation; an order form; a two-sided list of temple members, staff, and teachers; and a list of those people you sent baskets to in 2016.  Please indicate the names of people you wish to give Purim baskets to this year and send the order form and list back to the temple by February 6, 2017 with your full payment. You may donate your basket, give baskets to non-temple members ($15.00 each), and reciprocate with other temple members, as described in the letter.

You don’t want to miss out on being a part of this wonderful tradition and donating to the temple at the same time!

Thanking you in advance,

Wendy Sloter for the Purim Committee
