From the Rabbi

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.

Talmud Class

After a very successful 24th year of Talmud study, we have completed the sessions for 2020/2021.  We will resume again in the Fall with our continued study of Tractate Brachot.  You can find it here if you wish to join the class: https://www.artscroll.com/Books/9780899067186.html

Theology Class
Theology class met every Wednesday morning during the academic year and delved deeply into Sin-a-gogue, a volume dealing with sin and repentance.  We have completed a very successful year and can now decompress for the summer.  We will resume again in the Fall with another volume for study.
Join us each Shabbat morning (Saturday) for Torah study of the portion-of-the-week (or pretty close to it!!) at 10 AM in the Zoom Room 589-198-4173 p/w/181818. No Hebrew knowledge is required and everyone in the class is a Torah scholar – even you! Rabbi Stanway will send you the text so there is nothing to buy. The conversations and observations are always engaging. The class is fun and everyone is most welcome

We will be sharing Havdallah, the very short ceremony marking the end of Shabbat and the beginning of the week on JUNE 19 at 7 PM in the Zoom Room 589-198-4173. Come join us for some moments of peace and reflection as we strengthen one another during these challenging days.

Family Affair Garden

Social action and family affair are planning a small flower garden, but we need help from a few ace gardeners in the congregation. We would like to install two raised beds that will be watered by the temple sprinklers. We need assistance with the construction of the beds, plant selection and placement. Our hope is to deliver cut flowers to congregants that are unwell, or to local assistant living or nursing home residents. Please contact Lori Goldstein at lorigoldstein83@gmail.com or Annie Raulerson at savannie@hotmail.com if you would like to help. Thanks so much!

Share your College

Students get really excited about their colleges and they love to share all the great qualities of where they go to school.  If you (or your child) would like to share their school with other college-bound TBM students, let Rabbi Stanway know and he will match up your child with another who is interested in the same college.  Email to rabbi@bethmiriam.org.  

Share your Career

We will be surveying our college students, asking their majors and career paths. If any match up with YOUR profession, would you mind speaking with them and sharing your career advice? Perhaps you can help them narrow their area of interest or provide them with career options they never knew existed in the field! There is so much they can gain from your knowledge and experience! If you’re interested, Please reach out to Rabbi Cy! Thank you!
