President’s Message

  Lauren Soll

As we approach the holidays of Thanksgiving and Chanukah, we have the opportunity to reflect on what has been meaningful this past year. We are so blessed to be members of Beth El. So many “moments” take place in our beautiful building, 7 days a week/365 days a year. There are numerous events and programs, educational opportunities for children and adults, B’nai Mitzvah, weddings, baby namings, and graduation ceremonies, just to name a few. As our brand new mission statement says, “Congregation Beth El is our spiritual home. We create a warm and welcoming community where people of all generations are enriched by learning and inspired to discover their personal experience of Jewish life.

It is the WE that stands out to me in our mission statement. WE have so many supportive and dedicated congregants who volunteer their time and work countless hours to help plan an event, cook a meal, attend minyan, stuff envelopes, keep our college kids connected and so much more. As Rabbi Krupnick said during the High Holy Days, “There are times when I’m leaving the building late at night and there are still meetings taking place.” Volunteers are our backbone. Without the support of our countless volunteers, we would not be able to accomplish all we do to provide the best possible experience for our congregants. Together as a shul, WE create the “moments.” Thank you to our dynamic clergy, professional staff, Board of Trustees, ARMS, committee chairs, committee members and other volunteers. You continue to share your time and talents and it is important to tell all of you how much your efforts are appreciated.

During the holiday season, it is also time to think of those who are less fortunate. There are many families who are experiencing challenging times. As a shul and a community, we offer social action opportunities for congregants to participate in to help those who are in need. With the upcoming holidays, I urge you to participate and make a difference to those families that may need help. Lead by example and show your children how rewarding a simple gesture can be appreciated by someone.

Todah Rabah to all of you. I am grateful for your continued support in making our shul so wonderful and special.

I want to extend my warmest wishes to you and your families for a festive Thanksgiving and a Happy Chanukah.
