Thank You to All (February, 2014)

We don’t often enough thank the many members of our congregation who help make Temple Sinai the wonderful community that it is. Generosity of spirit, of time, of talent, of financial resources is at the center of a vital religious community. The generosity of so many of our members has led to a more robust religious community. We are fortunate in the broadest sense of the word. I want to salute those who do so much, sometimes in public, and more often behind the scenes: you who help plan progrcms for our community of all ages — ranging from Tot Shabbat and other programs for our youngest children to our senior members who keep up and enhance the social and religious life of our temple family; you who raise money and you who monitor our financial well being; you who organize for holiday celebrations; you who visit the sick among us; and you who bring music and joy into our sacred spaces; you who lead prayers here in our synagogue; you who strategize for the future as well as you who keep our past; you who work to ensure that all who want to be part of this community are welcomed; and you, the many members of this congregation, who give so much of your time, your talent, your financial resources to ensure that this welcoming sacred family is a religious home for the many who enter within.

Thank you to all our members, very much including those of you unable to be with us as often as you might like. The generosity of our members makes Temple Sinai a meaningful and vital religious community. May we all grow from strength to strength.
