Presidents' Report - February 2019

We are Sixty and Fabulous…We've only Just Begun!
 

We will be honoring Rabbi Pivo and Cantor Larry, our dynamic duo, at our 2019 Gala. They have invigorated EBJC and are propelling us forward to the next fantastic 60 years.

 

Ad Mea V’Esrim (עד מאה ועשרים), live long and prosper (until 120)

This is our biggest fundraiser event of the year and we intend on making it a big success. We will be creating a full-size ad journal as  a great way to honor our clergy who are making a wonderful shul even more wonderful. Eric and I are calling on all members, especially those who own businesses, to participate in this great advertising vehicle to benefit EBJC and your business. It is a win win and our most successful way of increasing our revenue and holding our membership dues. This is your shul, it must have doors open, staff to cater to our needs, electricity to heat and light our way, a truck to plow snow from our paths, and clergy to warm our hearts, serve our membership, and instill spirituality and the love of God in our souls. EBJC is here to serve God and the community. EBJC is grounded in three pillars of Judaism. As Shimon Hatzadik said, Pirkei Avot 1:2 the world stands on three pillars: Torah, Avodah and G’milut Hasadim.  Torah  - study, learning and being better Jews; Avodah (literally translated work) - worship, service and prayer; and G’milut Hasadim -  doing good deeds, being kind to others. Let's make sure EBJC continues these important missions here, for us, for our children and for our grandchildren.

We will have an amazing comedian, Modi, (We hear he brings people to tears) as the main attraction at the gala. It will be dinner and a show, without the hassle of going to Manhattan, with friends and family, celebrating our community and our professional spiritual leadership. Invite your friends and your family to join ours. It's going to be fabulous!
