Beit Midrash and Library

Temple Beth Am Shalom is excited to announce the opening of our Beit Midrash and Library (BML)

Down through the centuries, the Jewish people have been known for our rigorous and creative study and creation of primary Jewish texts – Torah, Midrash, Talmud, and Zohar. The traditional place of study is called the Beit Midrash or “house of study”. A Beit Midrash is sacred space usually attached to a synagogue or located inside in a dedicated room where study partners would pore over a text and discuss (and often heatedly argue!) its meaning.

We felt it was time for Beth Am Shalom to have its own Beit Midrash! After weeks of organizing and categorizing our current MP2 room, the transformation is complete. However, the Beit Midrash will function as more than a study hall. It will also serve as a library offering hundreds of volumes in various categories:
Torah, History, Talmud, Fictio,n Tradition, General Reading, Spirituality, Philosophy, and more . . .

When you enter the BML you will notice a small table next to the bookshelves with a white binder. That binder contains all the information you will need to know to utilize the Beit Midrash and Library to its fullest.

We sincerely hope that 2017 will be the year when we begin a deeper commitment to Jewish learning and we hope the BML will be the place where it all begins!

If you have any questions, please contact: Dave Garcia (732) 742-7392 ddgarcia@optonline.net

Please stop by the BML and see what we have to offer…I think you are going to love it!
