For those of us involved with the preparation of programs and services, we have the opportunity to reflect on the previous year, concentrate on our current state of affairs and create a vision of tomorrow. Our congregation continues to grow, and our programming improves dramatically to meet these needs.
This year we are committing as a congregation to reaching out, as well as reaching in. We realize there are literally thousands of Jews in the Santa Clarita Valley who remain unaffiliated. We need your help in bringing people in. We need to be placed in contact with them, so you can help by making sure that people you meet are on our mailing and e-mail list.
We also want to make sure that everyone already part of the Temple Beth Ami family is connected, especially through our very successful Havurah program. If you are not yet a part of a havurah, contact Rena Slabich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This month you should be proud, as the tradition of dynamic leaders at TBA continues. With the next generation of trustees, supported by those who have been involved since the beginning, TBA is an influential force in Santa Clarita and indeed throughout Southern California.
I want to thank everyone who has participated and lent their energy to making this a wonderful community, and congratulate those taking on the mantle of leadership.
Temple Beth Ami’s strength has been made possible through the hard work of so many of our congregants, board members, volunteers, parents and students. The road ahead is challenging and exciting, but with all of our continued commitment, we will assuredly have much to be proud of this time next year as well!
Have a wonderful summer,
Rabbi Mark Blazer
