Shalom!
As the New Year approaches I am thinking about all of the wonderful things that have happened in the last year, and more
importantly all of the things left undone. Community and people that were helped, friendships that were made or strengthened, plans that were carried out or started, and so on. There has been much good done, but there is still much more to do. People that need our help and our friendship in our congregation, our surrounding community, and beyond. This year will be full of opportunities to do good for others. My personal plan is to take advantage of those opportunities and to do more.

We are making progress with the Our House Lobby Refresh Project. Preliminary plans have been provided to the committee from the design architects and are under review. You will be seeing and hearing more about this in the months ahead. Another very exciting project to note is with our newest Beth Tikvah Committee “The Tzedek Committee for Social Justice.” I’m sure you have seen the “Hate Has No Home Here” yard signs and may have even bought one, thank you! Their current campaign is “Civic Engagement” with the goal of making Beth Tikvah a 100% voter registered congregation. You may have seen the voter registration table at the temple picnic last month, hopefully you stopped by. If not there will be other opportunities to register or update your registration. No matter who you chose to vote for, please make an
informed decision and get out and vote! It is your right and our country is depending on you! Remember that primaries are
important too! In closing, I reallywant you to know that my mission this season is to right any wrongs that I may have caused, any harm that I may have done to others as that is never my intention. If there is anything that I have done to hurt or offend any of you, please accept my sincerest apologies. I may not even know that I have done this and would surely welcome a conversation to resolve issues or hard feelings. Please reach out to me. Jim, Jason, Kyle, Kaylee, and I wish you and your families a Joyous, Healthy, Happy New Year and an easy, meaningful fast.

May you all be written in the book of life for the coming year.
L’Shanah tovah!
