The summer is here! First and foremost, we wanted to thank those of you who were able to join
us at our annual meeting where we shared our successes and challenges from both the past year
and the year ahead. We celebrated our students and teachers, our education coordinator, our
administrative staff, our outgoing Board members, our graduating seniors and Tristan Davies and
Charlie Seelig, our Congregants of the Year!
We also said goodbye to Rabbi Carolan, and wished her well as she embarks on the next part of
her journey with her family.
We will welcome Rav Leora on July 18 th and look forward to getting to know her and learning
from her in the months ahead.
During the transition period before Rav Leora arrives, Amy Small, our Kesher Social Worker
with Jewish Family Service, will be offering office hours at Agudas Achim. She will be in the
Rabbi’s office on July 13 th from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Amy may also be reached at email@example.com or
401-338- 8301. Please note that meetings and calls are confidential. Amy would like to hear from
you about anything that is on your mind.
And finally, we are excited to introduce a new leadership and volunteer training program that we
will offer to all those interested in the congregation on Sunday, July 24 th at 12:00 noon. Whether
you chair or serve on a committee or if you are simply interested in working with a group to
improve your own leadership and support skills, you are welcome to join us! We plan to iron out
the details very soon and we will present more information about how to register in the days
Have a wonderful summer and we hope to see you soon!
