We reopened the temple on February
4 and 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,
having an oneg or kiddush or holding
dinners as soon as the Board votes to do so. Meetings and
rentals may begin in house cautiously and slowly as soon
as they decide that it is safe to do so. We will continue to
follow CDC guidelines and ask that you remain patient,
work with us and follow our rules so we may continue to
move forward. If you have any questions, please call the
office for accurate information. We look forward to you
coming and enjoying our services and socializing for a few
minutes with your temple family.
We want to take this opportunity to thank those who did
the streaming and maintained the Synagogue so that we
were able to keep our members informed, provided religious
services during this pandemic and made sure that
we could reopen quickly and safely. Our appreciation goes
to Manny Lewis, Larry Moss, Steve Reinstein, Doug
McGowen and Mike Canter. May they continue to have
strength and stay healthy.
It has become evident that there is a rise in Antisemitism
in Florida. We are very concerned and are beginning to take
steps to make certain that we are safe and that our temple
is protected. We are forming a safety committee to study
and plan for maintaining a safe environment. If you are
interested in working on this committee, please call me so
we can discuss it and direct you to the appropriate person
in charge. Watch your newsletter for further information.
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 provide
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
March, but if you want to continue having them, we need
sponsors beyond that date.
If you want to have an oneg or kiddush following services
each week, we will need to have sponsors. The cost for
sponsoring will be $50.00 for each until we see what our
actual costs are. Those who have already scheduled
onegs, will be rescheduled in March.
Stay safe and healthy and practice recommended precautions.
