From the President’s Desk

It sure seems that time flies by when your having fun. I guess that we all must be having a lot of fun as it is time once again to get out the Bulletin.

I want to thank everyone who attended the bi-annual congregational meeting in November. We had a rather large turn out and if you did not attend please do so at the next Congregational meeting and bring your ideas and thoughts.

Speaking of ideas and thoughts on how to better serve Temple Sholom of Ontario, please if you have an idea bring it to the board. We want to hear from you. If you have a concern and don’t tell us about it, how can we address it and correct whatever the issue might be.

Our community has recently lost a valued member. Michael Hecht passed away this past November and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family as he will be missed by all.

The Memorial Board that we had hoped would be installed in late December will not
arrive until the end of February. Remember, if you have been thinking about getting a
plaque for one of your departed loved ones you can order it now and it should be at the
Temple prior to the arrival of the Board.

The Chanukah party was F A N T A S T I C. Wow, so many parents and kids showed up to enjoy the latkes, hot dogs and Bonnie’s famous meatless chili. The kids had so much fun with the arts and crafts as did the adults.

A number of us are preparing for our annual Temple Sholom of Ontario Mexican cruise in January. For those of you who are not participating in the cruise this coming January please think about it for 2019. We all have a wonderful time and really enjoy everyone’s company.

We will continue to have our monthly family dinners/services throughout 2018 so please keep an eye out on our face book page or the flyer either by e mail, snail mail or on the table in the entry hall.
Some really great stuff is coming up at Temple Sholom in the coming year so keep your eyes open for the flyers and please make sure that you check our Facebook page.

Looking forward to seeing all of you in the near future.

Have a Healthy, Happy and Safe New Year.
