President's Message March 2005

There are two events scheduled for the Center this spring that have me very excited. The first is that we are going to have a full blown Passover seder at the Temple on the second night of Pesach, which is a Sunday evening. Our Rabbi is going to lead the seder and it has the possibility of being a very special evening. I sincerely hope that you will be able to join us for this event.

The second is a celebration that we are planning to commemorate Rabbi Lewis’s 25th year as a Rabbi. We will have a special Shabbat service that evening with a speaker who was the head of the search committee that hired Rabbi Lewis for her first Rabbinical pulpit. We will follow this with a special Oneg. We will also have a service on Saturday morning with some Torah study and more food afterwards. We are planning a commemorative booklet to honor the Rabbi. The Rabbi has requested that all funds generated as a result of this booklet be put into a fund to underwrite the building renovations.

Please be generous when asked to contribute to this fund.

Winter is almost over and the spring with renewed life and flowers will be here soon.
