The Prez Sez

President’s Message September/October 2013

Wow! It’s already here!! High Holidays are literally around the corner, beginning Sept 4 at 8:00 PM. We are fortunate again to have Rabbi Brian Zimmerman along with his entire family! Please make them feel welcome.  If you would like to include them for any of your holiday meals, let either myself or Karen Kleinman know.  They will be staying through Yom Kippur.

Kroger “letters” were sent out through email and at services.  It is different this year, as it has to be done electronically.  If you have trouble or can’t do it, Jacob Ecker has graciously volunteered to help or do it for you.  It is such an easy way to help our Temple bring in some additional funds.

We will be participating in the Arts Fest and the Cultural Fest again this year on Saturday, Oct. 26th.  It was a huge success last year, so please help Barbara and Diane out with volunteering your services.  If you can’t volunteer, then mark your calendar and come out to support both your civic and religious communities!

On September 21 and October 19, Rabbi and Linda will be leading their men’s and ladies’ spirituality brown bag luncheons following Torah Study.  If you have not participated in the past, it is a rewarding and wonderful way to come together as a Temple Sinai family.

You will be receiving information soon on an exciting Scholar in Residence event that we will be hosting here at Temple Sinai on November 1-2.  As soon as you get your flyer, reserve your spot.  You will not want to miss out on this event!  I want to thank in advance the committee that has been working so hard to pull this together: Karen Kleinman, Judy Katz, Anne Reinauer, Laura Myrick, and Ellen Congiundi.

On behalf of the board, I wish everyone a healthy, happy, and good Yom Tov.

President’s Message July/August 2013

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful summer.  Please remember that we do still have Services every Friday evening at 6:00 pm and our lay leaders would love to look out and see your smiling faces!  The High Holidays are early this year with Rosh HaShanah starting the first week of September.  We are fortunate to have Rabbi Brian Zimmerman again this year leading our High Holiday Services.  The September/October bulletin will have the schedule for the Services.  I am looking forward to a week at Camp Henry S. Jacobs again this summer.  It always warms my heart to see Judaism so alive in our youth, as they are our future.  Remember our Camp Fund when making donations to the Temple, as living in such a small Jewish environment makes camp even more important for our children.
