Monthly Message from Temple Co-Presidents Dolores Cohen and Jean Janowsky

Happy New Year to you! We hope the year 2018 will bring you good health, happiness and peace.

It is with pleasure, and thanks to you, our members, for making this past year a success in every way. You attended and enjoyed our social events; celebrated our holidays together and most of all, your financial generosity throughout the entire year was a plus to our bottom line. The members who attended our Congregational meeting in November were informed that we met and exceeded our proposed budget. We hope it is the beginning of many more for Temple Judea.

January 1st of each year we install your new Board. Your Membership committee has planned a Wine and Cheese event prior to services on Friday, January 5th, in celebration of the new Board installation during services. I would like to thank our outgoing Board members for the time and effort that they provided our Synagogue during their terms of office. Thank you to Arnold Adler, Sandi Bothwick, Gayle Jacobson, and Bernie Roberts for their important service.

COMING EVENTS: Morning Minyans are Monday and Thursday mornings at 9:am. It is helpful to come so those saying Kaddish for a loved one will have the opportunity.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 2018 Wine and Cheese event prior to services at 6:45 PM, in honor of our Installation of our 2018 Board during the Shabbat Service. Please come to thank our outgoing directors and welcome our new Board for 2018.
