About Us

Welcome back to Shul! Welcome to another year of upcoming High Holidays. Where has the summer gone? As we continue our new membership incentive program and a reorganized Rabbi search committee, we still have lots of work ahead of us (including house committee chores).

Let us welcome our High Holiday clergy-Rabbi Moshe Edelman and Cantor Gilbert Polt. Please assist us in supporting their efforts to ensure enjoyable services. I also hope the High Holidays make it more palatable on your posterior bodies.

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are times to take inventory of your actions, reflections, forgiveness, and make changes to improve yourself and your relationships with others. We all make a difference in our synagogue, as well as our lives. We must feel accountable because if you are not, then you don’t count. I need all of you to count and be heard with diplomacy.

“It is vain to talk of the interest of the community, without understanding what is the interest of the individual” (Jeremy Bentham). What do you want from our shul and how can we achieve this? This year, as we continue our journey, we need to reinvigorate ourselves once again and create a synagogue that interests you. But we always need your help!

My family and I wish all of you a sweet and healthy New Year. Our thoughts and prayers continue for the people and the State of Israel.

L’shanah Tovah Tikateivu V’techataymu!
