With the renovation behind us, we see 2012 as an opportunity to focus on our community, to make it stronger and position it for the future.

How many of you are getting tired of the building construction and the temporary bathrooms? I certainly am. While I’m sure we are all ready to get our shared spiritual home back in order, we’re also thrilled how it is turning out. We can finally see how this design will be a big improvement for our community and how it will properly represent our community’s strength.

We are about to begin a new Board of Directors year. This will be my fourth year as President of the Board, and I’m truly honored to continue to represent you. It is hard to believe that three years have gone by. Last year we met some very big goals, and these accomplishments motivate us to raise the bar to achieve more in the coming year.
I want to thank those Board members that have served out their terms: Gilah Abelson, Helen Danczak, Jim Scheinman, Patti Smilovitz, and Barbara Weber. They have given of themselves for our benefit. We truly appreciate their service and look forward to their ongoing help and support to strengthen our community.
I also want to welcome our new Board members. They are: Michelle de Haaff, Bruce Fram, Seth Gladstone, Mindy Rosenberg, and David Saul. We look forward to their participation this coming year.
On Rosh Hashanah, I spoke about our fantastic and inspiring year at CBJ. We all know it takes an amazing team of volunteers and professional staff to achieve these successes. As I step back and think of a word that describes these people, the one word that comes to mind is “excellence.” We are so fortunate to have in our community so many excellent people that are dedicated to our success. Tonight I would like to tell you some stories that I hope will paint a picture of what I mean by excellence.
Before I begin my remarks, on behalf of our Board of Directors, we want to wish you and your family a happy, sweet, peaceful, and most importantly, a healthy new year.
I’ve truly enjoyed and I continue to feel honored to serve you in this role as President of Congregation Beth Jacob’s Board. It’s hard for me to believe a year has gone by. This past year has been so amazing that when I step back and try to summarize it, the only word that comes to mind is “inspiring.” It was truly the most inspirational year of my past three years that I’ve served as President. I would like to tell you a few stories that might paint a picture of some of the inspirational moments for me.
