Executive Director’s Message


Dear Friends,


How nice to be able to share the High Holy Days with family and friends at the Jewish Community Center. The auditorium looked warm and welcoming. The flowers in memory of Bernice and Martin Smith were bright and beautiful in the fall colors for Rosh Hashanah, and the Yom Kippur flowers in memory of William Kowalsky were pristine white, both added a feeling of celebration and reverence for observing the two holiest days of our year.

Many thanks to all our members who accepted Aliyahs and honors. A special thanks to Elliot Rabin who has joined us for many years to daven many parts of the Rosh Hashanah service. Elliot also shared a touching and heartfelt sermon in memory of his father-in-law and a very long time member of Temple Beth El, Saul Finer.

Cantor Larry Fader again led our services and delivered the sermon in his beautiful voice on these special days.

Lois Silverman shared with us the martyrology beautifully with much feeling, Michael Silverman shared the Kol Nidre message from the heart and touched all in the congregation.

The shofar was beautifully blown by Evgenii Samoshuk and Dr. Alan Harris. The sound of the shofar is very special and was special music to all of us.

I thank Victor Perlman and his staff at the JCC for all their help in making the Center a warm and lovely sanctuary to observe our very holy days. It is always so pleasant to work with the JCC folks. Thanks to Edward Kowalsky for all his help to get everything moved from Temple to the Center.

To our congregation and guests, to all our families and friends, I again wish one and all a good and healthy year. May Temple Beth El, our country and Israel have peaceful and happy days ahead.


PS: Temple Beth El is going to celebrate its 100th birthday in the spring. Do you have any special memories of being in the TBE family you would like to share with us?
