Anyone who knows of any adults or families who are interested in affiliating with Temple B’nai Abraham, please e-mail any contact information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, Eric Zieff Membership Committee Chair
Opening Day is Sunday, September 11, at 9 a.m. We will begin with an assembly and morning service for all students and parents. Once students are dismissed to class with their teachers, parents will hear a brief welcome from Rabbi Adler and important school updates from Deborah Vozella. A coffee hour will follow, prior to a special program at 11 a.m. to install Rabbi Adler as TBA’s new spiritual leader. Religious School students will participate in the installation program, and parents are encouraged to attend. The day’s ceremonies will end with a luncheon at noon for all interested students, parents, other congregants, and guests. Reservations are required for the luncheon and a nominal fee will be charged ($10 per adult; $5 per child; $30 maximum per family). Please make your reservations by September 6 through the TBA office. Our first Parents’ Coffee and PTA Meeting for the year is scheduled for Sunday, September 25. We’ll have light refreshments and socializing from 10:30 to 11 a.m., followed by our meeting. We’ll bring everyone up-to-date on school events and discuss fundraising and other topics of interest. Don’t miss it!
As we prepare to welcome year 5772, we do so with increasing enthusiasm tempered with a bit of trepidation. Enthusiasm because we welcome to our temple family Rabbi Alison Adler in whom we have placed our faith in her ability to lead us as we move forward as one of the most vibrant congregations on the North Shore. Enthusiasm as we have assembled a talented, committed and hardworking slate of officers and directors who share a common appreciation for our financial challenges and what we need to do to overcome those challenges. With the help of a dedicated committee we have prepared and begun implementation of a Strategic Plan to ensure the short- and long-term future of TBA.
The congregation extends a mazel tov to Julie Sireuil and to Brooke Edelstein, who each celebrated a bat mitzvah over the summer. The congregation also thanks their respective parents, Elissa and Alain Sireuil and Stacey and Robert Edelstein, for sponsoring a Kiddush in honor of their daughter.
