Second Day Rosh Hashanna services will be outside on the patio - weather permitting - at 10 am on September 20.  Everyone is welcome.
​​​​​​​
(If the weather becomes inclement, we will notify everyone on FB and on the temple website and go back to the YouTube livestream only)
 
 
 
 
What to Expect from LiveStream
This is the first year of LiveStreaming anything.  We have put together a beautiful service that will alternate between camera shots of the bima and machzor text on the screen.
 
 
 
 
Follow Along on the Days of Awe
The High Holiday machzor is in the form of a flipbook if you choose to follow the service that way.  You can download the ebook (quite inexpensive) or use the free online flip-book.  You can also come to the temple before each holiday and borrow a hard copy of the prayerbooks.  Go to this link for full details:  https://www.ccarnet.org/publications/hhd/
 
 
 
 
Evening Services
Please remember that the Erev Rosh Hashanna and Erev Yom Kippur services are at 7:30 and NOT 8:00.  This is an important change.
 
 
 
 
Food Drive
Please check the temple homepage at bethmiriam.org for this year's unique Yom Kippur Tzedakah food drive.
