Message from President Susan Baum

      Right now, we are in the period of the counting of the omer leading up to Shavuot. “Counting” is an integral part of Jewish and secular life. Many people counted the days until they could get their first Covid vaccine and then the second one. Next, it’s counting the next couple of weeks until we’re fully covered.  Now that most of our congregation has been vaccinated the restarting committee is working out details about returning to the chapel for in person services. We may have to “count” the number of people allowed in the chapel according to state rules and the CDC recommendations.

     This time of year, we talk about the transformation from slavery to freedom. The pandemic has forced many of us to become “slaves” to our devices in order to participate in services, Zoom meetings or connect with our families. Once the pandemic is over and we change back to in person services, there will be anxiety and excitement about returning. I don’t think things will return to exactly the way they were before. We definitely will keep the live streaming of services for those who can’t come or don’t feel comfortable being in a group yet.  Hopefully, we have learned what our congregation likes and can try to meet the needs of everyone.  We need to be grateful for what’s coming each day and don’t forget to “Count Your Blessings.”.

     Our annual congregational meeting for elections and budget will be on Thursday, May 20 at 7:00PM on Zoom.  Watch for the Zoom info. I look forward to seeing everyone there.

 

See you in shul! (Hopefully in person soon.)

Susan
