    There is a story told about a man whose name was Chaim.  Chaim was a seeker who went from sage to sage, never satisfied with what he had learned.  He came at last to a sage who knew all the secrets of life.

     Eagerly, Chaim asked that the mysteries be revealed to him, but all the sage would say was, "First things first, one thing at a time."

     Unable to interpret this, yet thirsty for revelation, Chaim remained and served the sage for a number of years.  During that time he heard little and understood less.

     One thing he did hear: There will be a Golden Age after several centuries.

     Growing impatient, Chaim determined to leave the sage and travel to the Golden Age.  After a long search that spanned the oceans and continents, he found a wonder-worker with a time machine who agreed to put Chaim to sleep for seven hundred years.

     Chaim woke up and looked around.  He saw the ruins of a mighty civilization.  

     Chaim went in search of that part of the earth where the Golden Age might yet be found.  There was little sound of human life, however far he wandered.  Finally, he saw the smoke of a fire.  There, beside a crude hut, he saw a solitary man dressed in rags.

     "I seek the Golden Age," said Chaim.

     ""You have missed it by two hundred years," said the man.

SO IS THERE A MORAL TO THIS STORY?   IF SO, WHAT IS THE MORAL OF THE STORY?  OR IS THERE MORE THAN ONE MORAL TO THE STORY?

FROM THE PRESIDENT:

I hope you all enjoyed Passover, I want to thank all the people that helped plan and execute the plan with such efficiency. Nothing happens in a vacuum. It takes many hours and work to put on our Passover Seder and this year we had the most people ever! My gratitude to all. 

In this bulletin we have printed the slate for your Board for the coming year . We will call for nominations from the floor to make sure all who want to serve are considered  The meeting will be the last Sunday in June. We will start with breakfast at 10:30 am,  with the meeting following. The election of Board members for 2018-2020 will take place at this meeting. An agenda will be forth coming. Your attendance is very important. 

The annual Holocaust Remembrance Program (Yom Hashoah )will be held at Temple Emanuel , 65 Ave N. & Kings Highway Sunday April 8th at 1:00pm. Temple Shalom has always supported this event with a good showing I hope this year will be the same.

As we look forward to starting our third year in our own building I am pleased to report that all is well. We have made good use of the space. I think it has served us well. We must always remember the reason for the building is to serve as our

SYNAGOUE, Therefore, we must make sure that Shabbat and Holiday services are well attended. A well attended service encourages visitors to think about joining Temple Shalom.
