Purim and Passover provide us with opportunities to all come together and celebrate as one community. These are two Holidays that are built around celebrating together as a people.

As we head through February, we will begin our annual process to fill open Board and Trustee positions by asking congregants to serve on the Nominating Committee. Once formed for this year, the members of the Nominating Committee will be reaching out to solicit people for these openings.
