President’s High Holiday Message
A new Temple year is ahead of us, with all
our annual events to look forward to including Yom Kippur community break the
fast meal, Chanukah dinner, and community Passover Seder.
This year we are going to start having our
Sunday morning bagels and lox breakfasts again.
The first one will be held Sunday, November 13. Dinah and Jay Goldenberg will be organizing
the first breakfast. We need volunteers
to organize each breakfast. Please check
your calendars and plan to organize a breakfast.
are in need of volunteers to host onegs after Shabbat services. Please check your calendars and sign up to
host an oneg – many dates are still open.
If you’re unable to host an oneg, please consider donating some money to
purchase food for an oneg, or leaving some baked goods in the freezer for use
at an oneg.
A significant part of any faith group is
community involvement. In the spirit of
tikkun olam, I urge everyone to become involved in the community and reach out
to those in need. Please contact a board
member if you are interested in helping organize one of our events or assisting
in any capacity – all help is welcome!
Our dues paying membership continues to be
very small. If you are not yet a Temple member, I hope that you will make that
a priority for this year. The future of our Temple and Jewish
community are at stake. We need your help, both financially and
with your participation. I ask every
member to contribute as much as possible to help our Temple keep going.
Although our Temple membership is small, we
are a vibrant, thriving community. Our
congregation is rich with history and caring individuals that have made our
community what it is today. We truly are
a family. It is my hope that we continue to thrive for many more years.
I am proud to be part of this
Let us go forth into the New Year with a
renewed spirit of community, volunteerism, and friendship. I wish everyone peace, good health, and
happiness in the New Year.
Best wishes for sweet New Year,
