    movie screening of 
    What’s My Line by Aaron Davidson 
    Sunday, August 30, 2015  Jewish Museum of Florida 
    This is the story of the Miami Beach Eruv – a practically invisible, simple white string that circles above Miami Beach. This symbolic boundary means everything to some, but is unnoticed by most. Maintaining it is no easy task, especially in South Florida weather. Filmmaker Aaron Davidson offers a fascinating look behind the string and it’s effect on life in Miami Beach.

    COMMUNITY EVENTS
    Spread Seeds of Peace in Maine with “Play for Peace”

    Maine’s Seeds of Peace Camp was established to promote peace between campers from 27 countries including Israel, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and more. Campers from different sides of a conflict meet with professional facilitators to delve into the hardest issues of the conflict openly and directly, challenging inherited stereotypes and prejudices with real stories and experience through sports and other activities. 
    Menorah member Maya Frai visited the camp last year and started “Play for Peace” a community service project that collects gently used board games for the countless rainy days in Maine.

    Drop off your board games in the “Play for Peace” bin in the main lobby.

    Temple Menorah, a thriving center for Jewish living in a community of committed members, is Miami Dade County‘s foremost Traditional Congregation. We are dedicated to adhering to the customs and traditions of Halachic Judaism while creating experiential and creative ways to observe our faith.
    We offer exciting opportunities to share your desire to grow Jewishly and build life-long relationships on a congregational, personal, and professional level. Our roster of activities has enormous breadth and depth, with year-round offerings for the youngest among us—in our Temple Menorah Jewish Montessori school, Mommy & Me and summer camp programs—through our senior adults in the Isidoro & Luisa Lerman Senior Adult Enrichment Program. In between, we have a vibrant youth movement—beginning with grades K-2 in Nitzanim, moving through 3-5 in Chalutzim, Kadima (grades 6-8) to MUSY (Menorah USY, grades 9-12); Mahkolet Academy—a unique after school learning experience with Hebrew, for grades K through 7; and an ever evolving roster of contemporary activities for young professionals. Unique in an age of struggling congregations, Temple Menorah offers a daily minyan twice a day, a Youth Minyan Saturday mornings, as well as a meaningful and inspiring spiritual experience in our main sanctuary 
every Shabbat. Contact us to learn more about our communities: early childhood, elementary and teens, young adults, young professionals, families, and senior adults. We have something for everyone…and everyone has the opportunity to create new possibilities. If you are looking for a Traditional community that is steeped in Torah values and observance, and yet is also modern and innovative, Temple Menorah is for you.
