It Is the Only Way

It has been a demanding two months for me, the Executive, the Board, the Rabbi, and those who have sprung into action to help us out, Bob Solomon, Stephen State, Jeff Phillips, and of course our accountant Gerry Marcus and our bookkeeper Fay Edwards. I believe most of us have gone through those stages of shock, denial, anger, and acceptance that are characteristic of tragic situations.

When we come to acceptance, the question is where do we go from here? The answer is, and has always  been for Jews: forward. As I see it, that is our only option. I would ask all of us to work toward moving beyond our feelings of betrayal, to how do we solve it. How do we make sure we continue to have a vibrant, stimulating, religious community?

These are questions that the Board, your Rabbi, the Finance Committee, our professionals, and you can answer. I can only ask for your support, in any way you can give it, and acceptance that forward is
the way.
