Religious Affairs Committee February 2021


I am writing this article in very early January, so 2020 is still very much on my mind. So, goodbye to the old year and let's welcome this new year with hope and confidence that better days are upon us.

Rabbi Schonblum and our Temple officers have done and continue to do a fantastic job of keeping us all connected. The streaming services are outstanding and all the Zoom meetings and parties do so much to help us all maintain a feeling of belonging.

On Sunday, December 13 we held a mini Chanukah celebration in our Temple which was streamed. What a pleasure to see Molly Gross do her usual candle lighting. In addition, the Rabbi gave an inspirational talk about hope and light. We concluded with a musical presentation led by Trudy Lerner. Thanks to Trudy, Malka Lerner, Charlene Robinson and Tudi Winkler singing our favorite Chanukah melodies and encouraging us to sing along at home.

At our next committee meeting we will begin our plans for Purim services and Passover. Time marches on!

Richard and I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year.
