Welcome to Temple Beth Miriam

Beth Miriam is a Reform synagogue filled with tradition as well as creativity. We are about creating a truly holy space for everyone who comes into our Mishkan – the place where God dwells.

This is a place where you can pray, sing, be intellectually and spiritually stimulated, engaged with the community and with Israel. Ours is a place of joy and support and sharing.

Ours is a place of joy and support and sharing.

Beth Miriam is an egalitarian community where traditional families, LGBTQ people, interfaith families and partners, singles and anyone interested in finding a sanctuary will be welcome. We are authentically warm and our holy space is always sincere.

Simchat Shabbat: Our New 6:30 service

We heard you!

As part of our way of offering a Shabbat experience to younger families, we are offering a 6:30 pm service on March 17, April 21, May 26 and June 9.  These services will be over by 7:30 (at which point, if you would like to say Kaddish but don’t want to be at the service so early, Rabbi Cy and Cantor Marnie will be there to lead it with you.)  The services will be filled with the music you know and love and may use the new Mishkan Tefillah for Children or the regular Mishkan Tefillah.

Everyone is most welcome to these services; young, older, members of the community, people interested in the community and everyone in between!

Please mark you calendars or refer to the temple calendar

Torah Study in full swing

plaut-torah3Our Shabbat morning Torah study has begun.  Each week we will delve into the text using modern and classic commentaries in a free-flowing discussion.  Everyone is most welcome to join us for this one hour session of learning.  Check the temple calendar for the dates (i.e., when there is a bar/bat mitzvah that morning, there will be no Torah study class.)  Please join us for this egalitarian, welcoming and haimishe hour of learning.

Israel Pictures Visual Tefillah!

Rabbi Stanway is putting together another Visual Tefillah service and wants YOUR Israel trip pictures!  It doesn’t matter how old the pictures are, just put them on a thumb drive and bring them to the temple for inclusion into the next Visual Tefillah service on March 3.
