As the High Holidays approach, the pace at Temple becomes almost feverish. There are services to plan, and all manner of logistic and administrative details that must be managed so that we, as congregants, will be able to share the spiritual fellowship of these Days with comfort, sanctity and ruach. It requires the extraordinary effort and dedication of our professional staff to make this happen. I have come to know them, and I admire each for what they do, and how they represent Temple. My thanks to them, from all of us.
Also, in keeping with the role Rabbi Splansky has played over the past year, and will continue to fulfill during this time of transition, she now becomes our Acting Senior Rabbi. Since her very first days at Temple she has brought not only a multi-generational depth of Rabbinic ethos, but an energy, sincerity and devotion to Holy Blossom that is very special. The Officers and Executive of Temple, and the Board, express the appreciation of the whole congregation for the leading role she continues to play during these sensitive times.
We all look forward to welcoming you during the High Holidays.
Dr. Harvey Schipper
