October 2019 Message from President Howie Hirsch

L’Shana Tovah to everyone associated with our synagogue.
I want to wish each and every one of you a HEALTHY and happy new year.

As I look to the future, I am less certain than ever of what that future holds for me.
Will I retire? Will I look for work in the field I have been in for the last 40 years?
Will I look for meaningful work in the area? Will I look for volunteer opportunities?
The one thing I can assure myself is that I will be well occupied in the future.

I plan to be a bit more active in the details of running the synagogue, but to my committee chairs, I can assure you I will not be micromanaging your efforts.

For those of you not aware, we received a $50,000 grant from the New Jersey Office of Homeland Secu-rity, and I will be working with Jeff to upgrade our synagogue with recommendations from our inspec-tions with security advisors, probably doing the paperwork required by the state and anything else Jeff needs me to help with.

I look forward to seeing everyone during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and look forward to receiv-ing a big hug from each of you.

Shana Tovah
