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

A big thank you to Michele Dorris, Membership chairperson, and her very special committee, for the delicious Wine and Cheese presentation on July 27th. We were happy to welcome our members and guests who participated in the Dedication of our Memorial Plaques. Rabbi Linson’s prayer ceremony and Susan Kotses beautiful wordless songs and melodies, added to a very meaningful evening. Of course, it goes without saying that our Temple bakers again outdid themselves with the Oneg Shabbat desserts.

Please note that our Selichot service is this coming Saturday, September 1st at 7:30 PM. There will be a special recognition of the families who have generously “Adopted-a-Torah.” Six of which have been carefully repaired and made completely Kosher by our master Scribes. Jean and I are looking forward to seeing you there.

The High Holy Days begin on September 9th. If you have not sent in your Temple Dues, please do so, as we want you to be with us, as well as have your requested Aliyot and honors. Your fast reply will assist the Religious Committee with the assignments. A special thank you to our members who have been Benefactors and Patrons. Your generosity is a tremendous asset to our Synagogue. We appreciate all contributions to our Bimah Flower Fund, which adds beauty to our Sanctuary for all to enjoy.

I know we continue to get mailings about the holidays, and those of you who have attended our holiday meals know they are always a sellout. Get your reservations in now so you won’t be disappointed.

Please check your bulletins carefully for the upcoming speakers that have been scheduled. Brotherhood and Sisterhood are getting interesting, informative guests and/or our own members, who share many of their interesting trips and experiences, that we know you will enjoy. Check the future Social Committee report for an upcoming celebration being planned!

Remember Monday and Thursday Minyans at 9:00 am. We need your presence for members who are celebrating Life Cycle Events.

Jean and I would like to wish all of you a sweet year filled with only blessings.

L’Shana Tovah Tikatevu, for a good and sweet New Year.
Dolores Cohen, Co-President
