President’s Message (March 2016)

Dear Temple Sinai Members,

As we head toward spring, I look forward to sharing some exciting things with all of you. I am really grateful to our wonderful Temple Community for its ongoing support.

I wanted to highlight several important things happening in the next couple of months.

First, we will be celebrating Purim on Wednesday, March 23. Our Purim Service (at 6:00 p.m.) has always been one of the highlights each year as the Rabbi and Cantor have always put on an incredible service! Donna Gordon might have retired as our cantor, but she promised to drop by. I can’t wait to see what Donna and Rabbi Bennett have in store for us this year.

Second, we will have our First Night Seder on Friday, April 22, following the 6:00 p.m. Shabbat service. We always have a terrific crowd as we celebrate this wonderful holiday together.

Last, we have our 60th Anniversary Celebration the weekend of April 29–May 1:

  • At the 7:30 p.m. Friday evening service, April 29, we will have Senator Dick Blumenthal here to celebrate with us. We will also honor our founding members, long time members, past Presidents and past Sisterhood presidents.
  • On Saturday night, April 30, we will have our Gala. This will be a fun evening of dinner and dancing.
  • On Sunday, May 1, the children will be making special food bags in support of our cause to help those who suffer from hunger.

I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions about these events or any other items of concern.
