YOM KIPPUR 2009/5770 - THE SOLOMON PROJECT

Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote, "The body without the spirit is a corpse; the spirit without the body is a ghost." Our Kehillah Kedoshah, our Sacred Community, is our spirit. We are members of Congregation Beth Jacob because, on the “inside,” our congregation is a warm and welcoming Jewish home for all of us. It is the place where we connect, where our children learn about Judaism, where many of your children or grandchildren and perhaps you celebrated your Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, a baby naming, marriage and many other schimas.   Tonight I’m going to talk about the “body,” our building, the physical space which enhances and supports our spiritual vision.  Our meeting place where we celebrate our Jewish life together.  The Solomon Project is our very exciting initiative to renovate our building and grounds to create a space that enables our vision of Kehillah Kedoshah.

2009/5770 ROSH HASHANAH REMARKS

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, healthy new year.

It's hard for me to believe a year has gone by so quickly.  I've truly enjoyed and continue to feel honored to serve you in this role as President of Congregation Beth Jacob's Board.  I'm lucky to be serving at this time because our synagogue community and our organization are both strong and vibrant.
