From the President
It was a pleasure to cap off the summer with the celebration of a Bat Mitzvah at the shul over Labor Day weekend. Being able to celebrate with Rena Walker and her parents, long-time active members and friends of the synagogue, was a real treat. Robin Walker, Rena’s mom, is a long-time Board member, the editor of the synagogue newsletter, and former vice president of the synagogue. Michael, Rena’s dad, has been the force behind the maintenance of the community Eruv that we all enjoy. Together they have brought a warmth and hospitality that makes this community a treasure. It was an honor to celebrate with them and their entire family.
It is in this good spirit that we look to the year ahead. Rosh Hashanah is right around the corner and with it comes new opportunity. Opportunities take many shapes and sizes; some are about personal growth or family, while others are about spiritual growth and community. At the Adams Street Synagogue there are many ways to get involved and grow as individuals and as a community.
While every holiday throughout the year has its traditional, symbolic, and/or ritual foods, Rosh Hashanah’s special flavor is sweetness: apples and honey, honey and apples, the crunch of tangy fruit mixed with rich sweetness. May we all merit a sweet new year filled with many simchas, good nachas, and good health.
I hope that you will join Rabbi Weinberg and our cantors, Yehuda Gutwein and Noah Cheses, on September 29 through October 1, as we greet the year 5769 at the Adams Street Synagogue. L’shanah tovah tikatayvu!
