Temple Beth El President’s Message

I would like to share this from the Accidental Talmudist:

A lovely little boy was holding two apples with both hands. His mother came in and softly asked her little boy with a smile:

My Sweetie, could you give your mom one of your two apples?

The boy looked up at his mom for some seconds, then he suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.

The mom tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.

Then the little boy handed one of his bitten apples to his mom and said: Mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgment. Give others the privilege to explain themselves.

What you see may not be the reality.

Never conclude for others.

As we start this new year, I would like to thank everyone that supported temple this past year whether it was as a volunteer, those that attended services and events or monetarily. As I reached out for advice or assistance, no one declined my plea.

Religious school has begun with Cantor, Ann Nathan and Bozhena and Gleb Samoshuk as our teachers. They are looking forward to a productive year with the four classes.

Thank you to all those that assisted in transforming the JCC auditorium into a warm and welcoming place to greet the new year of 5779. As always the staff members at Temple Beth El and the JCC employees were extremely helpful.

Thank you to all the congregants that participated in our holiday services. To our ushers for keeping the service running as smooth as possible, an appreciative thanks. Todah Rabah to Mundy and the ritual committee for the hours they spent assigning all the honors for the High Holidays.

Please make your reservation for the Shabbat Dinner after services on October 12th.

Mark your calendar and make your reservation for the Men's Club Breakfast and Political Forum on November 4th.

I hope you are writing your story for the 100th anniversary celebration booklet that will be published for our May celebration. Anyone wishing to be on the committee to plan the festivities, please let me know.

Congratulations to Pavel, Natalia, Avigail, Karneliia, Mikhail, Leora and Yonotan Samoshuk on becoming citizens of the United States!
