June Brings All Good Things


Well, it is June, summer is coming, the numbers are down, the temple is slowly re-opening, Annual Meeting is in another week, and our reunion is in a few more weeks, all good things.

This month, I have the privilege of announcing our Congregant of the Year, Stephen Rodman. I do not necessarily know where to begin, but I can tell you that Stephen is one of the most selfless, humble, patient, and kindest people I have encountered. We all know that Stephen dedicated four years of his life as our temple president, he has since continued to be a mentor for the presidents that followed, and he continues to be an important resource for our lay and professional leadership team. I hope you will be able to attend our reunion on June 19 where we will highlight the many contributions provided by Stephen through the years.

As you saw in my recent e-mail, we are beginning to re-open our temple building. On June 25, we will be having our first in-person Shabbat service. I think it will feel almost surreal to be back in the sanctuary and I am looking forward to that feeling…I certainly hope you can attend.

I’m looking forward to catching up with many of you on June 19 at our reunion. There will be details coming soon on the food…

Please stay well.
