President’s Message (January 2016)

Dear Temple Sinai Members,

I hope everyone enjoyed Hanukkah, and it was wonderful to see so many of you at our terrific Hanukkah Service! As the calendar turns to 2016, I wanted to give you all an update on some of the wonderful things that have just happened recently or are upcoming.

First, I had the pleasure of attending the Sisterhood’s Dinner and Silent Auction. This was the first time the Sisterhood ran this function, and it was very well attended. Ann Speyer and the Sisterhood did a wonderful job!

Second, the Social Action Committee recently completed their Turkey and a $30 campaign. It was a great initiative for a very important cause. Sarah Maltese and her committee did a great job including wearing turkey themed outfits. I have volunteered to wear a Turkey Suit!

As you know, our Cantor Donna Gordon has retired as of January 1. We are planning a luncheon for her on Sunday, January 31, at 11:45 a.m.

As far as upcoming events, I am most excited about our 60th anniversary coming up at the end of April! We will honor some of our long time members and past leaders on April 29 at our Friday Night Service, and that will include a special guest speaker. And, on Saturday, April 30, we will have our Gala!

We have any other wonderful things planned for the year, including a concert to benefit Hunger. Stay tuned for more details.

As the calendar turns 2016, I look forward to another great year at Temple Sinai. Please let me know if you have comments or suggestions.
