As the winter begins to wind down, and some of our
friends head back north for the season, I would like to provide
you with our most recent update from the CDC. Most
of you know we have been working very hard to keep you
all safe. It has been a long 2+ years and we are still
As we begin the Spring season later this month, we all
should be thankful for the things we have. That said, the
last 2+ years have taken a toll on our financial stability.
While everyone is working to bring in members and get

To that end, Trudy & Lani have kept the Synagogue running
and have done a great job of keeping us informed. We
are working to get our tenants back in the building and also

finances in order and it is not easy, so my hat is off to
Trudy, Lani & Sherilann. We are working on the budget for
the 2022 / 2023 year. Once we have it and reviewed it, we
will convey it to our Board and then we will give it to our
membership at our annual meeting.
We wish you all a great Spring.
Jesse, Mary and Carol
