A personal message from Michael…
I see the synagogue as the essential institution of Jewish communal life, just as it has been for 2000 years. Besides the Shabbat and Seder tables, the synagogue is where we celebrate the holidays of the Jewish year. It is also the location of “lifecycle events,” times that provide our lives with meaning as we carry on the traditions of our ancestors. We celebrate with parents at b’rit milah/b’rit bat and at bar/bat mitzvah, we dance with the bride and groom, and we cry with mourners reciting Kaddish. We pass along our traditions to our children and grandchildren. Our clergy and teachers help us find the moral compass provided by Torah. We work together for tikkun olam, completing the work of Creation. We here at CEEBJ have outstanding clergy to teach and guide us, within a warm, inviting community. My role as President is to be a voice of the congregation to our clergy and professional staff, and a leader as we strive to fulfill our mission: We are a vibrant, spiritual home and place of learning where all individuals can deepen their Jewish identity, engage with our community and give back to our world. I hope to guide lay leadership as we continue to build our congregation for all members, and to inspire greater participation in congregational life. I look forward to hearing from the community with any comments, questions or concerns, as we work together to strengthen CEEBJ for ourselves and the generations to come. “You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.” (Perkei Avot 2:21)
