Welcome home…

 

We are Reform Jewish community which means that we are an egalitarian community where traditional families, LGBTQ people, interfaith families and partners, singles, Jews-by-Choice and anyone interested in finding a sanctuary will be welcome.  

Beth Miriam is a place of welcome and warmth.  You will always be embraced regardless of your background, previous affiliation, or Jewish knowledge.  We believe that you are a vital part of the Jewish future and present and we are a place in which to nurture, feed and protect that Jewish part of your self.  Join us anytime for a class, a service or an event.  You will find a place to call home right away.

Purim is on its way

Purim begins on the evening of March 9th. 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 bags for temple members are $5.00 each.

Learn more about this project

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 2019.  Please indicate the names of people you wish to give Purim baskets to and send the order form and lists back to the temple by Friday, January 17, 2020 with your full payment. You may donate your basket, give baskets to non-temple members ($10.00 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,

Purim Palooza!

Get ready for another exciting Purim Spiel! This year we are doing my newest original spiel called Purim Pop Palooza based on current pop song hits like Señorita, Old Town Road and Bad Guy.

Auditions for TBM students in grades 3-12 will be on Sunday, January 5, during school time. Please prepare a short song that shows off your voice. The sign up sheet will be on the music room door beginning in mid-December. Students in grades 1 & 2 can be in the chorus (no audition). Adults are welcome to be in the show too. We also need help to create scenery.

Read more about the Spiel!

Rehearsals will take place after school (till about 1:30) on the following Sundays: 1/12, 2/2, 2/9, 2/23 & 3/1. The performance is on Sunday 3/8 during school time. Attendance is very important for a successful show- out of respect for the players and the show,  please check your calendars for your child’s availability before committing your child to be in the spiel.

We will be taking photos and video of the performance and need 100% participation. By signing up your child to be in the spiel, you are agreeing to good attendance and for photo and video to be taken and posted online and in the newspaper. All cast members must practice their parts at home and come to rehearsals prepared.

If your child will be participating please click on the following link to receive text messages specific to the Spiel:
