President’s Message:
From Sheila Luber & Ann Rosenfield

Our annual Shabbat in Shevlin Park is always fun and this year’s event resulted in an especially large turnout. Maybe it’s the beautiful setting, the delicious food or simply the warm embrace of many good people sharing hugs and lots of laughter. Our thanks for the sweet service go to Rabbi Johanna, Julie, Jo, and Kathi Copans-Essinger, a new member with a lovely voice.
