Miriam Browning Jewish Learning Center
Through the generosity of Lynn and Armand Shapiro and Jeri and Mark Shapiro, great grandchildren of Mamie Browning, the Religious School has been named the Miriam Browning Jewish Learning Center. Miriam Browning was a beloved religious school teacher and devoted lifetime member of Congregation Beth Israel. Born in Houston in 1871, her family were leaders in the Jewish and broader community. The family experienced the many changes that came as Beth Israel grew, from the time when it was originally an Orthodox congregation and as it evolved into a Reform congregation. Mamie, as she was fondly called, developed a strong love and lifelong connection to Judaism and religious education which she generously and affectionately shared with family and students throughout her lifetime. She taught Religious School kindergarteners for over 40 years, instilling her love of Judaism in generations of Beth Israel families.
