President's Message - June/July 2011 Print

Dear Members of CBI,

The time has come for me to write my last president’s message and I do so with mixed emotions.

I am grateful and thankful for these past 2 yrs. I appreciate the trust you have placed in me and look forward to continuing my service to Congregation Beth Israel.

I want to thank my officers and board, as well as the many dedicated congregants that helped me fulfill my responsibilities.

I was fortunate to have Rabbi Roseman as our religious leader at my side.  He continues to amaze me with his wealth of knowledge and his dynamic leadership. We are also privileged to have Phyllis with her vast talents handling the many projects she has taken on.  Ken and Phyllis, I thank you both and appreciate you both very much.

As I leave the presidency, I am confident that with Debbie Bustillo as our administrator, the business of the congregation is in good hands. My thanks also go to Natalie Honigbaum, whose knowledge of our financials is appreciated.

My sincere thanks to Susan Martin our Religious School Director, whom goes beyond the call of duty, and also to Rose Garza, our dedicated custodian who does a marvelous job, and finally, my deep appreciation to Mike Trimyer, who has kept us safe for many years.

I take great pride in having been President of Congregation Beth Israel. I wish all of you good health and happiness.


                   Shalom,
                   Maury Wolfson
