Gil Hoffman Oct 27

posted Oct 26, 2014, 4:05 PM by David Plass   [ updated Nov 3, 2014, 4:23 PM ]

Dear Beth Am family,

Please join me for what is sure to be a fantastic program tomorrow, October 27th from 7:30pm - 9:00pm at the Bellmore Jewish Centre (2550 Centre Ave, Bellmore).

We will be hearing Gil Hoffman, who is the chief political correspondent and analyst for The Jerusalem Post. He has interviewed every major figure across the Israeli political spectrum, has been interviewed by top media on six continents and is a regular analyst on CNN, Al-Jazeera and other news outlets.

His lecture is called "Peace, Politics and Projectiles - An insiders look at the aftermath of the war in Gaza".

In this fascinating presentation, Gil Hoffman will take us behind the scenes into the decision-making during the operation in Gaza. He will discuss the regional ramifications of the war, focus on the interpersonal relations between Jerusalem and Washington, and offer up hope amid all the pessimism.

There will be a Q & A and desert reception following his talk.

There is no cost for the program.

Looking forward to seeing you there,
Rabbi Mickey

Congregational Meeting Oct 22 7PM

posted Oct 14, 2014, 7:18 AM by David Plass   [ updated Oct 23, 2014, 12:39 PM ]

Dear Congregants,

It is my pleasure to announce that on Wednesday, October 22 at 7pm (NOTE TIME) there will be a regularly scheduled Congregational meeting in the Youth Lounge, located on the School Level of the Temple Beth Am building.

The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the regular business of the congregation and vote on a change to the Constitution and By-Laws. The proposed change will reduce the size of the Board of Trustees. Since this is a modification of the Constitution and By-Laws of the synagogue, it must be voted on and passed at two consecutive Congregational meetings. 

The first vote, which passed, occurred at the previous Congregational meeting on June 25,  2014.  You can find the proposed change to the Constitution and By-Laws here.

I encourage everyone to attend this meeting, where you can learn a bit more about what’s going on at the Temple. More importantly, you will have a chance to make your vote count and your voice heard.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me at president@templebethammerrick.org or 516-978-1555.

Thank you,

David Plass
President
