Temple Beth El President’s Message

I would like to use my message to wrap up the weekend of the Centennial Celebration. It was a phenomenal weekend that was nearly perfect with praying and partying. The many hours of planning by many finally came to fruition.

The committee, Ernie Berkowitz, Julie Cain, Judy Finer, Roz Fisher, Myrna Lobenstein, Ann Nathan, Ann and Norm Siegel, Mundy Shapiro and Michael Silverman started a year ago to formulate the 100th anniversary.

For the beautiful floral arrangements, thank you to our anonymous donors.

I appreciate Cantor Socolof coordinating and arranging all the services for the weekend. Thank you to Rabbi Gerstein, Rabbi van Leeuwen and Elliot Rabin for taking part to assist Kal.

With her eye for perfection, a heartfelt thanks to Julie for her many grueling hours of toiling over and creating the program book with cover design by Lois Silverman. It was happily received with many compliments. Keeping track of all the accounting for the many bills and contributions continues to pile on her desk. Thank you!

To Mundy, thank you for fielding the numerous phone calls from near and far inquiring about the weekend. Also for

planning and executing the Kiddush Luncheon with the caterer. It was delicious and a time to schmooze and catch up with old friends.

Ann Siegel and Ann Nathan executed the Oneg beautifully. Many hours were spent planning, schlepping, shopping and setting up with the assistance of Tanya, Sophia and Mikhail Samoshuk.

Our 400+ invitations were complied and sent out with Rae Rosenfeld’s assistance and her expertise in creating the poster boards for the photo displays executed by Roz Fisher and her assistants Judy Finer and Dave Lowitz. Thank you!

Katrena Berkovich created the beautiful centerpieces on Saturday night. Her amazing touch gave the social hall a classy, celebratory ambience.

The talented musicians of Blue Star added musical charm to the enchanted evening.

Patrick from O’Connor’s Feast and Festivities

catered the weekend with Joanie, Catherine and crew. Many hours were spent in the kitchen for the celebration. Their advice and help along the way was greatly appreciated.

Rita, thank you for bouncing off ideas and your advice to Julie while she laid out the program book.

With three functions so close together and limited space, we put Avlim to the test. He passed the test with flying colors! Thank you, Avlim for all your hard work and patience.

Whether it was with your attendance, contributions, ads or stories, to everyone in the Jewish community and beyond, YOU made the weekend!

Thank you, Marsha
