Theme: Days of Awe- The ten days starting with Rosh Hashanah and ending with Yom Kippur are commonly known as the Days of Awe (Yamim Noraim) or the Days of Repentance. This is a time for serious introspection, a time to consider the sins of the previous year and repent before Yom Kippur. Among the customs of this time, it is common to seek reconciliation with people you may have wronged during the course of the year.
The Talmud teaches that Yom Kippur atones only for sins between man and God. To atone for sins against another person, you must first seek reconciliation with that person, righting the wrongs you committed against them if possible. We are looking for art to reflect these themes.

There will be a special tribute to Clara Gee Stamaty Ziment, a long time member of Beth Miriam and an accomplished artist whose work has been shown and appreciated for many, many years. There will be a wall dedicated to showing Clara Gee’s work and celebrating her.
