President's Message - March 2021 Print

Dear Friends,

 

What a month we have had.  Both good and challenging.  On the challenging side, we lived through a pretty devastating winter storm that left most of us without power for several days, and we marked an entire YEAR of dealing with COVID.  On the good side, many of us have been vaccinated.  Our COVID numbers are down and our expectations for returning to a more normal lifestyle are high.  We enjoyed a fascinating discussion about Jews and the Civil Rights movement lead by Dr. Stone, and we were treated to a lovely Sisterhood Shabbat.  Thank you to Dr. Stone for leading that discussion.  Thank you to Chris Adler and Carol Rehtmeyer for putting the Sisterhood Shabbat together.  Thank you to Kris Busk for preparing a delicious dinner and thank you to everyone who participated in the service.  It was truly a lovely and inspiring service!

 

I will be putting together our committee to nominate next year’s board of directors in the next week or two.  If you would like to serve on the committee or if you are interested in serving on the board next year, please give me a call. 

 

Passover is right around the corner.  As we remember and celebrate our freedom from slavery in Egypt, let us look forward to a time in the not-too-distant future when we can celebrate an end to this pandemic.  I wish you all a joyful and meaningful Seder, and please join us online for our virtual second night Seder!

 

My friends, stay safe and healthy, and get that vaccine! 

 

L’shalom,

 

Gregory Marks
