Getting Ready for Life to Resume at the Temple

September 2021   Keeping Connected

Hello friends,

This is one of my favorite times of the year when it comes to life at the temple. It truly amazes me how our community comes together to make sure our high holidays will go off without a hitch. And if you are not aware, there is a LOT going on in the background leading up to these days. So, thank you all for making the time.

As summer is sadly coming to an end, we are getting ready for life to resume at the temple. School will be starting soon, we will be together for the high holidays, and Friday night Shabbat services will be occurring on a more consistent basis at the temple. There will be virtual options for almost all of our happenings.

Over the summer, we replaced three of our very old HVAC units, a rather large expense that was long overdue and was approved at Annual Meeting in June. As you may remember, we had a campaign for updating some items in our kitchen. A convection oven and new rolling preparation tables have been ordered but like everything, will take a while to arrive (likely sometime in December). I’m excited that we are slowly but surely updating and improving our temple home.

If you have not yet done so, PLEASE send in your pledge form. Thank you to the many people who have already done this. Pledges are looking good so far this year and I will provide an update after the high holidays.

I look forward to seeing each of you on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, whether in person or on Zoom. I also wish each and everyone in our community, a healthy, sweet, and peaceful New Year.

L’Shana Tova,
