I am really not a fan of technology. It scares me terribly, not being able to connect with the gadgets that are made to simplify my life. For years I carried around a binder with all of my dates written by hand, in pen or pencil. It was heavy, but it was convenient. I could find what I was looking for without too much trouble. Then came the day I was convinced by a rabbinical colleague that I needed to play the part and go electronic. It looked sharper when a rabbi had a Palm Pilot in his hands rather than a book. I used the handheld computer for several years. I have to admit that it was quite useful when I remembered to bring it with me. What always tripped me up—and the reason I missed a number of dates in that early period of getting used to the technology—was the idea that you needed to sync yourself with the computer to keep things updated, especially if you are in the habit of entering calendar information in more than one place.
Following a vote by the congregation to approve a budget amendment, Temple B’nai Abraham has hired Deborah Vozella as Executive Director. Her key responsibilities in the position will include strategic planning for the Temple, programming, fundraising, and administrative management. Temple members at the June 8 Congregational Meeting added line-items to the 2008-09 budget to fund the new position. The vote was preceded by about an hour of discussion. A proposed bylaws amendment to eliminate the Executive Committee was withdrawn. Sorry, you must be registered and logged in to view this article and any associated comments.
