President’s Message

            A lot has happened in the last couple of months.  Your Board of Directors has successfully concluded negotiations with our new rabbi – Rabbi Shula Stevens Calmann.  Rabbi Shula is not a new face to CBS, as she has conducted services for us over the summer for a number of years.  Rabbi Shula will officially begin her duties on July 1, and will conduct her first service on Friday, August 15th, along with Torah Study on Saturday, August 16th.  We are very much looking forward to a new beginning with our new rabbi.

            Congregation Beth Shalom will hold our annual Congregational Meeting on Sunday, June 11th at 4:30 PM.  All participants are welcome to attend, though voting on issues and officers will be reserved for dues-paying members.  Input from all attendees is important, so please make time to come join us and share your views with us.

            One of the most important items on the agenda for our Annual Meeting is the election of board members.  Since the Board of Directors decides policy issues and sets the agenda for our congregation, I urge you to think about joining this group.  We encourage nominations from the floor in addition to those persons nominated by the current board.

            As I end my term as your president, I want to thank all of you who helped me over the last three years.  I encourage you to support our new president and board in their endeavors to help heal the congregation and bring back those members and attendees who left for various reasons.  We need divergent opinions to help make us stronger as we move forward.

Tony Kurlan, President
