As spring begins, we find ourselves emerging from a very busy and ongoing process to secure
new leadership, embarking on yet another transition, while excited to begin this new season of
In January, the Board had a productive retreat where we got to know each other better and had a
chance to think in depth about many of the issues facing our congregation. At the same time, the
Search Committee worked tirelessly to interview candidates, and by now you should have
received our letter welcoming Leora Abelson as the congregation’s new Religious Leader!
As a result of all of this activity, we are planning an important meeting so that we may all
reconnect and share our plans with you.
We will be holding a Town Hall Meeting on Sunday, April 10th from 4 to 6 p.m. We will
talk about community, with a focus on leadership, our congregation, our school and our
synagogue. This will be an opportunity for you to hear about what has transpired thus far
during our presidency, and, together with the Board, what we hope to accomplish through
June and in the year ahead.
Our agenda also will include a Strategic Plan update—where we are and where we want to be.
We will discuss how we hope to continue to grow while also remaining the warm, energetic and
welcoming community that we are.
We hope to see you on the 10th !
