Presidents' Blog: June 2019

Dear Congregants,

Here we are, almost at the end of June and finishing three years as Co-Presidents of Temple Beth Am. It has been our pleasure working as volunteers to help our temple grow and succeed during our time as members here and even more so during these last three years as Co-Presidents. It has been an honor serving all of you.

We have developed ideas designed to adapt to our changing Congregation and have watched as our Congregation embraced many of them. Most importantly we take pride in the way our Congregants have stepped up and supported the Give from the Heart Pledge Model and responded favorably to our Kol Nidre appeal during the High Holidays. The last three years have been phenomenal. You know what needs to be done in order for our temple to continue and thrive and you are doing it. We look forward to working side by side with all of you to bring in new members and financial security for our temple. 

Thank you to all of our congregants who have supported us in whatever way worked for you, whether by volunteering your time, attending an event, and/or financially. Support in a myriad of ways is so appreciated and needed. Not everybody has time to volunteer or attend an event but you may be in a financial position to give more than someone else…we will take it!! You may not have as much disposable income as someone else but you may have time to volunteer for one or more of the many tasks that need to be accomplished…we will take it!! You may just like to have a good time or simply attend a Shabbat or holiday service…we will gladly take it!! Everybody “donates” in a way that works for them and that is what makes this temple work. Just decide what works for you and keep it coming. This is an ongoing endeavor and we hope that you will all keep moving forward with us.

With great appreciation, in about a week we will end our term as Co-Presidents. We are grateful for your support and for everything you have done and eagerly look forward to seeing what more there is to come. 

Shari and Paul
