FROM THE PRESIDENT:
Dear Temple Shalom Members & Friends,
As we start the new Jewish year I want to wish each of you good health for you and your families.
I think this High Holiday will go down in the history book of Temple Shalom. As many of you know we lost our electricity and air conditioning as well as the use of rest rooms. Services went on as planned by decree of our Rabbi. On Erev Yom Kip-pur the Rabbi conducted service by flashlight. Quite an experi-ence! We had the light that God provides, but no air or rest rooms. We carried on, as is our tradition. Plans for the Break the Fast were changed. A vote of gratitude to Irene Klein for providing a take home bag to each congregate who had reserva-tions for the break the fast. To know we have thoughtful and wonderful members that rise to the challenge is heartwarming.
David Stoller on the ground and Gabe Brenner on the phone worked diligently with each other to make sure that the work would get done to restore our Temple with light and air condi-tioning. Again ,without them, how would we manage. We have been blessed with so many good people in our congregation.
We can look forward to another successful year with adult edu-cation, Shelley Foels’ Bat- Mitzvah, Sisterhood, Mah Jongg Marathon . and so many other programs and celebrations.
Thank you to Mary Weissman for helping in so many ways. To our Board of Directors, and far from last, Rabbi David Weiss-man.
