President's Message - July 2022

We are now embarking on a new venture.

July 1 will begin the new fiscal year

and will bring new ideas, problems and

exciting programs and activities. Our

Sisterhood and Men’s Club have already

begun planning new adventures. 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.


Please take note! Each board member is being asked to

form a committee of at least five members who will be striving

for the planning and successful achievement of activities

and goals of their respective designations. If you are

asked to serve on a committee, to participate in the services

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.


You have heard me talk about our members being a family.

I mean this with all my heart. The Bible says that “We

are our brother’s keeper” and it is our responsibility to

watch over each one of us, to make sure that we are safe

and healthy and that we have whatever is necessary for us

to survive and live. Pick up the phone and call one person

each day. Make sure that he/she is okay and that you care.

This will help many of us to live a little longer and know that

we are important to someone. If you are aware of someone

being sick, in the hospital or depressed about something,

let us know so we can call them or the Rabbi can console

them. Be a “brother” or “sister” to someone who needs us.


Our name “Pembroke Pines Jewish Center” tells us our

goal and purpose of being. We should be the center of

Jewish life and social activity. First and foremost, we are

the religious leaders in this community. Secondly, we lead

our Jewish community in the social an communal activities,

and finally, we are concerned for the health and physical

being of our members. Let’s make this name mean what it

says and stands for and take the lead in our own community.
