President’s Remarks         

November 27, 2021

Shelley Schwartz, President

 

Shavua Tov!

 

Thank you to Rabbi Sherman and Cantor Freedman for an absolutely delightful Shabbat Service and fun-filled Chanukah Bowl.  Of course, todah rabah to Cantor Kessler for reading Torah.  And it was wonderful having Rabbi Rosenbloom with us this morning chanting Haftarah, always perfectly! 

 

Thanksgiving turkey will just about be digested when we begin digging into latkes and gelt as we usher in Chanukah beginning this Sunday night! Which means the first of eight Chanukah raffle drawings will be on Monday during morning minyan!  The first 7 drawings will be for $100, and the grand prize drawing will be for $1000 on the last day of Chanukah!  It’s not too late to get tickets.  Call the synagogue office and we can arrange for you to get some!

 

Higher and Higher continues this week.  Rabbi Sherman’s next lecture of his 8-week course entitled “Moses: A Source of Spiritual Wisdom” will be on Monday at 1:00 and Dr. Sunnie Epstein’s parsha of the week Torah Study will be on Thursday at 1:00.

 

On Tuesday November 29th at 6:30 in person at KI will be a most stimulating lecture given by Amy Meyerson, a best-selling author who has published in a number of literary magazines and teaches writing at the University of Southern California.  She is the author of “The Bookshop of Yesterdays” as well as “The Imperfects”.  She will be introduced and following her lecture, interviewed by KI library director Ellen Tilman. 

 

And don’t forget the communal menorah lighting sponsored by the Kehillah.  This will take place Tuesday November 29th at 7:00 in Baederwood shopping center on the Fairway in Jenkintown.

 

On Tuesday December 7th at 6:30 in person at KI a riveting lecture by Tal Schneider, Times of Israel Senior Correspondent who will discuss:  Israeli Society at a Crossroads:  A Look at Israel’s Four Principal Sectors: The National-Religious, The Secular, Arabs, and the Ultra-Orthodox”.  This should be a fascinating discussion.  Information will be forthcoming in our E-blast, Facebook page, and on our website.  This program is co-sponsored by us, MBIEE, and KI.

 

And on Saturday, December 18th, here at MBIEE, we will be dedicating our new Torah Reading Table cover generously donated by the family of Len Cohen (z” l).  I am sure this will be festive and heart-warming as Len’s family joins us for the occasion. 

 

Last but certainly not least, a heartfelt Todah Rabah to Ron and Margo Grey for sponsoring today’s Chanukah-themed grab and go kiddush.  Incidentally, this will be their last Shabbat with us prior to heading back to the warm sunshine of Tucson Arizona and they want to say farewell and Happy Chanukah to their MBIEE family! 

 

In closing, Roy and I want to wish you all a Happy Chanukah and good luck to all who are participating in the Chanukah Raffle.

 

Shabbat Shalom!
