February 2020: From TBS President Josh Weissman
As we head through February, we will begin our annual process to fill open Board and Trustee positions by asking congregants to serve on the Nominating Committee. Once formed for this year, the members of the Nominating Committee will be reaching out to solicit people for these openings. Having said that, there are many who are still able to find a little extra time to allot for an additional worthy activity.
Giving back to our synagogue is not just a mitzvah, but also an endeavor worthy of our time. In the coming weeks, when the call comes asking you to serve, whether on the Nominating Committee, or as a member of the Board, I hope you will accept. If serving on the Board isn’t for you at this time, there are other ways to be involved.
Neshama is a recently formed group at TBS whose purpose is to plan and hold fun and free events at the synagogue for members of all ages. They recently held the first of the Sip & Schmooze series, a pre-Shabbat event on a Friday evening before services to get together and have some local wines and hors d’oeuvres. There are 2 more scheduled for Februry and March. One of the main goals
of this group is to have events and activities attended by different age groups and to attract people beyond “the usuals”. The Neshama group is looking for ideas from those who don’t normally attend events. If you fall into this group, they want to hear from you…their goal is to plan and hold events that you want to come to.
