In the spirit of Thanksgiving, and actually giving back, I want to share with the TBA community my strong desire to add a very important Board Trustee position to our synagogue's Board. I believe very strongly that it's our obligation, as a Board, to provide leadership as it relates to Mitzvah. Therefore, I've recommended a new Board Trustee position called Mitzvah Trustee. This trustee will be responsible for leading a variety Mitzvah related activities. Some examples are organizing TBA community initiatives to provide support to members who are sick, organize minions for shivahs, lead our Family Promise commitment, and any other initiatives that we can undertake as a congregation for the benefit of our members or the community.
Please contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're interested in the position or know someone who might be interested. There no requirements regarding how long you've been a member of TBA. In fact, we would welcome a new member willing to step up. Participation on the Board is a wonderful way to give back to your synagogue. This position, in particular, is much needed and will be truly appreciated by all.
I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving! And I thank you again for allowing me to be your President!
