The Work Never Stops

This has been a busy time for the officers, trustees and staff, and a time of transitions. The holidays are be-hind us now, and the officers thank everyone who put so much work into making them successful. Thanks especially to Rabbi Goodman for leading us, Student Cantor Goldin for her beautiful singing, and Henry Singer and Marvin Lieberman for organizing services so expertly.

But all the work that went into the holidays is the tip of the iceberg for the officers. We are happy to inform you that we have rented most of the fifth floor to a school, and the rest of the floor is rented as well. That was difficult, and we are thrilled to have completed that transition.

As you probably know by now, our Temple Administrator, John Golomb, has resigned, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors. As of this writing, we are engaged in an extensive search for a successor. Perhaps when you read this a new Administrator will be in place. If so, we hope everyone will support that person in the transition into this difficult position. The litigation with the developers of the condominium next door continues, but most of the physical work is completed. We hope to bring this to a close soon. Meanwhile, work is being done on our building to comply with Local Law 11. Many thanks to Lenny Shiller for leading that effort.

Many programs and events are planned for November and future months. Check the Bulletin to see the schedule. We could use your support. We need you. Please at-tend services and events, bring in new members, and contribute generously with your time and money.
