February 2017: From TBS President Brian Lakin

As some of you may know, we are now beginning to prepare our committee and synagogue-wide budget for our next fiscal year. This is a complicated process that involves many hours from our volunteers, who are tasked with developing a balanced budget each year. Our synagogue’s budget is funded primarily through our dues charges however we do run fundraisers throughout the year to help to cover some of our operational costs. There has been an unfortunate trend over the last several years with some of our long-standing fundraisers and while I do not want to take space here to analyze the reasons behind these trends I do want to present some data for your consideration.

I am happy to be a member of Temple Beth Sholom, and I hope that you are too. Sometimes when we are a part of a community for a length of time we forget how special that group is.

Happy 2017! Winter is in full swing and with it comes the cold weather, wind, snow and early nights. In addition to wishing everyone a happy and healthy secular new year I would also like to wish everyone a safe winter.
