President’s Message

  Lauren Soll
It is both my honor and a privilege to be writing my first message as President of Congregation Beth El.
I am thrilled to accept this position as the third woman president in our synagogue’s history and will do my best to serve the congregation with the dignity and respect that this honor deserves. I have been a member of Beth El for over 40 years and have been involved with Board activities for over 20 years. During this time, I have built very strong relationships with the clergy, office staff and congregants, which I feel will help me be a successful leader.
I am very fortunate to have a strong and energetic Executive Committee. I look forward to working with David Backal, Josh Brodkin, Ben Levin, Karen Schlessel, Stuart Sauer, Cathy Backal, Leslie Breslau, Karin Elkis, Adam Sackstein and Tami Steinberg over the next couple of years. In addition, I have a fantastic Board of Trustees, which includes many past presidents whom I respect and whose experience will serve as an invaluable tool to me.
These are very exciting times for Beth El. A Strategic Planning Committee of very talented and dedicated volunteers has been established to help redefine and restructure our organization to make us operationally more efficient. Our “Securing Our Legacy” campaign is an opportunity to help us reach our goal of retiring our debt and to-date we have successfully raised over $4.6 million in a short period of time. I ask everyone to support this campaign and do their part to help Beth El reach its goal of financial independence so that we can continue to bring many incredible programs and services to our congregants and our community. As we reinforce our commitment to our mission of “Integrate, Educate and Elevate,” we write our story not only for the present, but also for our future. This is the story that tells us the value of belonging to such a wonderful synagogue.
As president, I am encouraging all of our congregants to get involved!! Volunteer for committees and come to our events, as we have so many exciting opportunities and programs on our agenda. There is something for everyone! Please feel free to communicate with me or other Board members about what you would like to see and what you think would make Beth El a better place. Make a commitment to strengthen your Jewish life.
