B’ruchim Habaim: Welcome to Temple Beth Miriam
There is a wide variety of Adult Education opportunities. Talmud study, Theology study, engaging guest speakers and presentations throughout the year offer challenging and inspiring learning.
Music fills our sacred spaces. Whether in Shabbat worship or religious school, we invite traditional and contemporary music to fill our hearts and souls. Guitars and piano are found at almost every service but there could also be other instruments that fill our holy spaces with sound.
The Eisenberg-Beirman Religious School is a place of joy and learning. Its teachers and administration are professional, engaged and committed Jews. There are learning opportunities all the way through 12th Grade.
Worship is beautiful at Beth Miriam. The services are soulful, inspiring, and meaningful. Everyone is most welcome to join us for Shabbat and holy day worship.
There are opportunities for teens to continue to engage with the temple well after bar/bat mitzvah. There are youth group activities, madrichim (student teacher) training, Teen Academy study with the Rabbi and other activities that keep teens engaged and furthers their education.

Mazal Tov, Heimlich-Aaron Award Winners
Mazal tov and congratulations to our Heimlich-Aaron award winners who were recognized on May 17 during Shabbat service. This year, the $1000 award was awarded to Olivia DelCuore and two $500 prizes were awarded to Jacob Swartz and Andrew Dressner.

To be considered for the prize, each of the young men and women need to write an essay detailing their commitment to the temple, to the Jewish people, and to their own communities. The award is sponsored by the Aaron Family, James and Madlyn and is awarded annually. The judging is performed by an anonymous committee who judge the essays on their own merit.
