March 2018: From TBS President Brian Lakin

Spring is here, and with it comes a full calendar at TBS. B’nai Mitzvah season is upon us, along with Pesach, The Catskills at TBS, the First Annual Kosher Brisket Challenge and a flurry of events and activities throughout the many arms of the synagogue.

As some of you may know, we are now beginning to prepare our committee and synagogue-wide budget for our next fiscal year. This is a complicated process that involves many hours from our volunteers, who are tasked with developing a balanced budget each year. Our synagogue’s budget is funded primarily through our dues charges however we do run fundraisers throughout the year to help to cover some of our operational costs. There has been an unfortunate trend over the last several years with some of our long-standing fundraisers and while I do not want to take space here to analyze the reasons behind these trends I do want to present some data for your consideration.

February starts an exciting time for our congregation. Our Nominating Committee will begin the task of soliciting people to be Board members, Trustees and Officers for the coming year. This is a difficult task, as there are many positions to be filled this time around.
