President’s Perspectives (from the March Shofar)

Dear Chevrie,

Yasher Koach to all those Congregants that worked so hard in February. If you are interested in hosting an Oneg, leading a service, doing a drash or anything that moves you, please contact Irvin Pike, Laura Wolfe, me or the office and we will make it happen! I know you can do it!

I’m sure everyone received their billing statement from Andy for 2019. You also received an updated Membership book with your statement. Yasher Koach to Andy for putting the book together!

Our Rabbi Search Committee has had phone interviews with prospective candidates and are reviewing others. As information becomes available, I will pass that on.
Adison did a magnificent job for her Bat Mitzvah. She chanted with excitement and experience. It was so delightful to be a part of this joyous occasion! Thank you to everyone that came. The Synagogue was filled!

Sisterhood will be meeting on February 23rd to discuss some outstanding programs for the Women of Temple Beth El. The Mensch Club will be posting information in the Shofar as to their upcoming meeting and events for the Men of Temple Beth El! Look for upcoming events for both of these groups.

February 10th the school children had a Seder for Tu Bishvat. Tim did an awesome job with the help of many parents that lent their expertise! Yasher Koach to all that participated!

The first Simcha Set met at Marie Callender’s on February 10th. We had eight Congregants that came and enjoyed a relaxed and fun event. Our next lunch will be on Monday, March 9th, at 11:30 am at The Crest Bar & Grill at 5025 Wible Road. If 50ish and above, you are welcome to join us. Please contact Marsha Parr or Ilene Schechter if you are interested in participating.

March 9th is the Megillah Reading. Jill Egland is looking for volunteers to participate in the Megillah reading. If you are interested in doing your own Drash in a fun and unique way, please contact her. March 14th is the Purimspiel, Tim Fromm and Peggie Soltis-McGraw to chair. If interested in participating in either one of these outstanding events, please reach out to Jill, Tim and Peggie!

Thank you again to all the Congregants of Temple Beth El for all you do to keep Us thriving with excellence!

Temple Beth El where Judaism lives!
