I’ll Be Retiring

As we begin 2016, I wanted to share my personal plans for this spring. I intend to retire from the temple effective June 1.

These past 15 plus years have been wonderful, fulfilling and most rewarding. We have an extraordinary Congregation led by our incredible Rabbi Bennett. You and I have been thru many life cycles (yours and mine), sharing tears of joy and sadness. We have celebrated many Shabbats, holidays and programs together.

I’m looking forward to having next summer and the beautiful autumn to enjoy many CT State Parks and New England sites as well as doing more photography (a favorite hobby of mine!) of G-d’s landscapes and seascapes. I’ll be spending more time with my special family as we explore New England (including trips to Fenway Park, Tanglewood Music Center and, of course, the beach!).

It’s now time for me to embark on my “next life”, which I hope will be one of pure enjoyment with family and friends.

I wish Rabbi Bennett, and the entire Temple Sinai membership, a very Happy (secular) New Year.

If you have questions, call me at the temple office, 860/561-1055.

All the best and shalom,
Joyce Sturm, Temple Administrator new message24
