From the Presidents – June 14, 2024


Shalom Everyone!

First of all, thank you to all of our members for attending the membership meeting this past Sunday.  It is always wonderful to see the congregation come together and plan for a new year with so many possibilities and opportunities.  We also elected a new Board of Directors, with most of our previous occupants graciously agreeing to continue in their positions.  We would, however, like to extend a warm welcome to our newest Board member, Samantha Golden, one of our Religious School parents.  Our new Board is already planning events over the summer and extending into the next year.  And as always, the Board would love to hear from you about any ideas you may have for how to improve the Temple for the upcoming year.

As a reminder, the Rabbi Search Committee continues in its efforts to search for a new rabbi for next year.  We will start submitting announcements and accepting job applications later this summer, with interviews scheduled for the fall.  The Board now plans to have a new rabbi selected by the spring of 2025, just before Rabbi Dean’s retirement.  We will provide more updates as we get closer to summer.

Finally, our next regular Shabbat Service will take place next Friday, June 21, at 7:30 p.m. Family shabbats have completed for the year but will resume in September.  Torah Study will take place Saturdays at 10:15 a.m. on Zoom. And of course, although Religious School is completed for the year, we encourage everyone to come to our wonderful Tefillah services once the kids come back for their classes in August.   Thank you everyone!  


If I am not for myself, who will be for me?

If I am not for others, what am I?

And if not now, when? -Rabbi Hillel
