President's Message - August/September 2016

E-mail Print PDF

At our annual meeting in June I had the great pleasure of announcing that this year, at our Ambassadors of Humanity gala we will be changing things up a bit.  We usually announce an honoree on behalf of our Shule, an honoree on behalf of Israel, and an honoree on behalf of our community.  This year our designated honorees fit all of those categories and more. With great pleasure and respect we will be honoring our very own Rabbi Shaya and Nechie Kilimnick at our annual Ambassadors of Humanity event.  It promises to be quite an evening. The date is yet to be determined but this coming year plan on joining us for a grand celebration!

Our annual meeting was well attended with many enjoying a wonderful sunny summer BBQ picnic in our courtyard prior to the meeting.  I want to thank Barbara Gray for chairing this event, Camelia Marzouk for all her help in preparing the dinner and Stephen Schwartz and Aharon Baruch for their BBQing expertise.

Over the summer, Shule committees are continuing to meet and address many different aspects of our Shule community.  If you would like to get involved or share any thoughts on Congregation Beth Sholom please don’t hesitate to contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

As the summer continues to unfold I hope you are taking advantage of enjoying the sunshine and warmth both outside as well as inside our Shule.
