Jim's Jems


I want to thank everybody for helping to make this year’s Food-A-Rama a great success. As you may have heard, we sold out of almost everything by the end of the day on May 16. Temple Beth-El netted approximately $22,700.00 from this year’s Food-A-Rama. This money is essential to help finance the day-to-day operations of our congregation.

Some people I want to recognize for their hard work in making this year’s Food-A-Rama so suc-cessful are Ronit Golan, Sara Deutsch, Sharon and Warren Goldsand, Jay Sklar, Jerry and Connie Paris, Rachel Bagne, Allison Braswell and Nanci Soriano. Their leadership helped to make this year’s Food-A-Rama a great success; however, it was a team effort on the part of our entire congre-gation that made this year’s event so profitable.

Please plan to attend the Annual Meeting this com-ing Sunday June 3, 2018, at 10:00A.M. There will be a delicious breakfast, and then you will hear re-ports from Temple Board members about activities that took place during the past fiscal year. In addi-tion, we will be discussing the urgently needed re-placement of the roof and HVAC system.

Finally, as I near the end of my term as President, I want to thank the Temple Board for their diligent work during the past two years. I also want to thank Rabbi Wing and Joyce Hulstedt, our dedicat-ed Temple Administrative Assistant, for making things much easier for me.
