To all members of our congregation…
In the American tradition, we wanted to use this November newsletter to give thanks, as we are so grateful to everyone who helped make our High Holiday services happen.
We will now attempt to name you all…
Our cantorial soloist Janet Encarnacion, the Choir, and everyone who blessed, read from, carried, lifted, or dressed the Torah, offered an English reading, or opened the ark during services; we thank you!
Sharon Friedman and Liz Moukit for blowing shofar; Kim Bodemer and Howard Tinberg for both serving as Gabbai, and Kim in particular for coordinating all of the Torah honors; we thank you!
Jessica Kopecky-Lanausse and Keri Pray in the office; the Ritual Practices Committee—Michael Rudnick, Kim Bodemer, Alan Wartenberg, Howard Tinberg, and Joel Kravetz; the Building Committee—Sharon Friedman, Gerry Bradie, Gary Price, and Brian Bodemer; the Education Committee—Lauren Scher, Cathie Cruz, Debra Packard, Michelle Hartenbergh, and Molly Jacobs; Children’s Service leaders—Caron Heller, Lauren Scher, Barbara Shays, and Tamara Gruber; we thank you!
Tristan Davies for the supplement and other print materials; Deb Mandell and Emily Farmer for the new website and other marketing tools; Barbara Shays and Charlie Seelig for the Break Fast; Deb Mandell, and Amy Bono for the flowers and pumpkins; and the Board Hosts and Ushers; we thank you!
And to those who shared any or all of these High Holy Days with us… we thank you for being a very special part of our time together as these High Holy Days were truly a community-wide endeavor!
With love, appreciation, and best wishes for good health and happiness in the New Year,
