Our Temple Board is planning ways to
grow, to involve our members and to
make our Synagogue more meaningful
and family oriented. Now is the time for
you to get involved, to let your ideas be
heard and to make this your Temple,
your home, and your social and religious
center of your Jewish life. You are all
part of the membership committee and
need to serve as ambassadors. Talk to your neighbors,
friends and anyone that you know doesn’t belong to a temple/
synagogue in the area. We need to actively recruit new

or to work on a particular project, please don’t refuse.
Help us make this organization meaningful and pertinent to
our members and to each one of us.

sick, in the hospital or even passed away and we don’t
know anything about it. PLEASE let us know so that the
Rabbi or one of us can be in touch and offer some solace
or help when needed.
