FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK

It has been a very busy couple of months here at Temple Sholom of Ontario.  Our new Rabbi, Zari Sussman, is just really starting to settle in and is busy working on her upcoming schedule for the various classes that we will be offering here at the Temple.

I am still asking you, our most valuable treasure, to decide which committee that you would like to serve on and to please notify Bonnie in the office of your decision as she will pass it on to me. There are flyers on the table in the hall that list the various committees that have been established, also I would love to establish a landscape committee to design and take care of the plants in the pots around the Temple (boy do they ever need to be taken care of.) So, if you have a green thumb and can volunteer a little bit of time please step forward.

We are fast approaching the Holidays and none too soon the Sisterhood has received enough donations to have new tables in time for the Break Fast. My congratulations to the Sisterhood on a job well done and a big thanks to all of you who donated a table, half of a table or even a leg.

Speaking of the Holidays don’t forget that Erev Rosh Hashanah will be here before you know. Services for the first night of Rosh Hashanah will be at 7:00 pm Wednesday September 20th.

We are still requesting that those of you who have e mail addresses that you notify Bonnie in the office at secretary@templesholomofontario.org that you would like e mails on upcoming events instead of by snail mail. By going electronic, the Temple can save money on postage which means more money for things that we need here at Temple Sholom.

This is an exciting time for our Temple and the enthusiasm is overwhelming. Please remember that this is YOUR Temple and if you have any ideas of how we can improve   in any way let us know. If there is something special life, let us know. If the world is closing in on you, let us know. We are FAMILY and that means we are here for YOU.

L’Shanah Tova,
Toby Sheila Bloom, President
