President's Message - February 2022
We are planning to reopen the temple back to normal as soon as possible. In order to do this, we ask that you continue to bring your vaccination cards with you, wear your masks in the Temple and continue to practice sound and safe precautions at all times. Please protect yourself and others by using good judgement and care. We will resume serving light food, have in house meetings and rent facilities cautiously and slowly as soon as we get the okay from the CDC. We will continue to follow CDC guidelines and ask that you remain patient, work with us and continue to follow our rules so we may continue to move forward and reopen fully. If you have any questions, please call the office for accurate information. We will resume having our Friday night Oneg and Saturday light Kiddush when we get the clearance. We look forward to you coming and enjoying our services and socializing for a few minutes with your temple family.
Remember that our Sisterhood now meets on the second Tuesday of the month (rather than the first) and our Men’s Club meets the last Sunday of each month. Both of these important arms of our Temple are looking for new members and people who are interested in working and helping our Congregational family grow. Let us know if you have any suggestions, bucket lists or contacts that will help us pro- vide more enjoyment or enlightenment for the members of this community. Be on the lookout for new potential members.
Have you noticed the beautiful flowers adorning the Bimah each week? They seem to be more beautiful and add so much to our services. We have sponsors through February, but if you want to continue having them, we need sponsors beyond that date. They are still only $65.00 and can be sponsored by up to two people at a time. Please let me know if and when you would like to sponsor the flowers. Also, if you want to have an oneg or kiddush each week, we’ll have to have sponsors for this. The cost for sponsoring these will be determined by the cost for the food. At present, we will ask for $50.00for each until we see our actual costs. We will schedule these after we are able to reopen. Those who have already scheduled one will be contacted to reschedule.
We wish all of our family and friends a happy and healthy New Secular Year and may it be the beginning of bigger and better times for all.
Stay safe and healthy and practice recommended precautions.
