Your Temple Involvement Can Blossom!

By Rick Howard, Chair, Nominating Committee

Members of Holy Blossom know and truly feel that our Temple is in the midst of tremendous excitement, growth and renewal of space and spirit. Keeping the ball rolling in a positive direction, however, is not only the responsibility and passion of our committed and effective clergy and staff, but of HBT members as well.

Holy Blossom’s Nominating Committee is responsible for identifying, vetting and nominating Temple members to become directors or officers on the Board of Directors of our Temple, the lay leadership of the entire institution.

We are, therefore, very much seeking a few additional talented and interested individuals to become members of the Nominating Committee, joining our current members. We have a lot of fun and fulfill an important role in the life of our Temple. The main thrust of our work (which requires commitment to participating in some meetings and making some phone calls, but does not involve a significant time commitment) takes place over the next few months.

We are also looking for people who are interested in actually becoming members of the Board for the new Board year that will commence in November 2018. Whether an individual brings experience and/or passion for Temple in general or has specific skills in finance, administration, education, worship, etc., we would welcome such people’s names being put forward. Again, the time commitment is not overly onerous and the rewards of your involvement are significant.

If you seek a position on the Nominating Committee or Board, you can rest assured that your application will be both appreciated and seriously considered. Even if there is ultimately not a fit from the perspective of one or both parties for one of these roles for whatever reason, we will absolutely look to get each interested member involved in helping with some other committee, program or facet of Temple life.

Please accept this note as both a sincere invitation and challenge to get involved. Ask not what your Temple can do for you…

Please contact Judy Amsterdam at [email protected] and a member of the Nominating Committee will be sure to be in touch to chat further!

    As one who attends Kabbalat Shabbat regularly, I can attest to the joy that the talented Nginah Band adds to the service. The more crowded the Youth Chapel, the more spirited the service. There is no better way to beat the winter blahs.
