Monthly Message from Temple Co-Presidents Arnold Miller and Sandy Shapiro

We have just completed a very serious portion of the Hebrew calendar; including the observances of Selichot, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Succos, Shemini Atzeros and Simchas Torah.

Taking a global perspective, a pandemic and political disharmony continue to plague The United States and Israel.

This seems like the perfect time to take a step back, recognize some things to be thankful for and have some fun.

Wait a minute – on November 26th there is a holiday in the United States to officially do these things. Boy we’re brilliant!

The two of us give thanks for:
– Being Jewish.
– Having close-knit and loving families.
– Our Temple Judea friends.
– Being physically able to run. (Fortunately we have not raced.)
– Working very well together for several years as both Temple Judea co-presidents and Religious Committee co-chairs despite our differences. (One runs with earphones and loves chocolate ice cream, the other runs bare-headed and prefers vanilla ice cream.)

Happy Thanksgiving,

With gratitude,
Arnold Miller & Sandy Shapiro, Co-Presidents
