President's Message - November/December 2015

Last month the Chagim brought joy to our Shul as we davened, ate in the Sukkah together (regardless of the weather outside!), and enjoyed the many Hakafot in celebration of Simchat Torah.  Many thanks to Rabbi Avi for filling our house with beautiful melodies, and to both Rabbi Shaya and Rabbi Avi for ensuring a meaningful start to 5776 for all of us.

Sunday, October 25th was a wonderful celebration in our Shul, honoring five truly deserving individuals. Mazel Tov to David Movsky, Dr Sidney and Barbara Sobel, and Tim Altier and Patti Munter on receiving the Ambassadors of Humanity award.  We were honored to learn how each person has given of themselves on behalf of our Shul, our community and Israel.  It was an inspiring evening and enjoyed by all who were able to attend.

Thank you to co-chairs Eva Weissman and Jane August and their committee for all their hard work in preparing for this event.  They ensured every detail was in place and were wonderful to work with. Thank you as well to Steve Schwartz for entertaining us as our emcee.

It is now time to roll up our sleeves, and renew our efforts to strengthen our Shul.  We all need to become part of the process in helping to make Congregation Beth Sholom a warm, vibrant and cohesive home for all.  Please let me know how you can help us to achieve our goal. I welcome all your ideas and encourage your commitment.
