B’ruchim Habaim: Welcome to Temple Beth Miriam2020-09-29T16:36:47+00:00
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. You will find a place to call home right away.

Temple Beth Miriam Livestream

The temple livestream system is now fully functional. Each Kabbalat Shabbat, the system will be on and we will use this instead of Zoom since we are now back at the temple. As well, families have the option to stream the livestream during their bar/bat mitzvah ceremonies, weddings, funerals, etc. You can access the live stream by clicking on the picture above and, if you wish, clicking on the square below to make it fill your screen. The livestream will go live about 1/2 hour before services which begin at 7:30 PM on Fridays.

If you have any questions, please call the office at 732-222-3754.

Also, a Zoom meeting on October 6th at 7:30 pm has been scheduled exclusively for Temple Beth Miriam congregants for a Safeguarding Our Votes workshop facilitated by RAC-NJ experts Nilene Evans and Liz Cohen providing information and answering questions about voting in the upcoming election. RAC-NJ is the New Jersey branch of the URJ Religious Action Center in DC.

Watch for reminders in Elijah and during high holiday announcements. The link to register for the October 6th 7:30 pm workshop is:


The workshop date anticipates Monmouth and Ocean County clerks mailing ballots by October 5, and also is during Sukkot. We hope to ‘harvest’ your pledges to vote as fruits of civic engagement, since high voting levels at TBM will make our state’s 46 Reform congregations more effective promoting causes to legislators that matter to NJ Reform Jews, and will help decisively to repair what needs fixing.

Shana Tova,

Phil Falcone

Havdallah Schedule

Havdallah is a beautiful way to end the Shabbat and, since the beginning of the pandemic and everything is on Zoom, we began doing Havdallah every week as a congregation.  The pandemic is still going on and people are not necessarily confined to their homes any more but many still want to do Havdallah from time to time.

Below is the schedule for the upcoming Havdallahs in our temple Zoom Room 589-198-4173 at 7:30

  • September 26
  • October 24
  • November 28

Cy, once again hats off to you, Marne, Stella, Andy et al for pulling off the YouTube services..You didn’t let the ‘virtual’ nature of them to repress your personality. Also, insightful sermons… The AM sermon tied in a lot of the sins/forgiveness as well as the good we hopefully do…
Rich Berger

We are so proud to be members of TBM. The high holiday services were so lovely (and technologically smooth)…Cy, Marnie, Andy and Stella, you’re all amazing. We are also grateful to have you part of our “framily”. Love, Annie and Steve.
