President’s Column — December 2019

It has been a few months now since we have welcomed Rabbi Hirschfeld to Temple Beth El. I can tell you all, that even though transitions can be difficult, we have negotiated this one easily.

Membership numbers are increasing. We have more money in the bank this month than we did last year at this time. Rabbi George has been receptive to the many different comments about services and has made several changes to accommodate the comments. We have had a minyan for many Saturday mornings. And, we are all enjoying his voice and learning new melodies.

The Men’s Club continues to meet the third Sunday of the Month. The Women’s Club held a successful jewelry sale and will meet again with the Men’s Club for breakfast on Dec. 29th. Movie night has added food to complement the movie this month.

There have been many new and old faces at these events. My message at the High Holy Days was that vitality in our organization is based on participation. Pick an event this month and come join us at Temple Beth El.

See you soon.
