July/August 2019: From TBS President Josh Weissman

We are now finally heading into Summer, which means we have passed a couple of important dates in the calendar. First, Installation has taken place, and the slate of Nominees has been approved and the newest TBS leaders have been sworn in. I would like to thank Brian Lakin for being the Chair of this year’s Nominating Committee. I know that it was not easy, but at no time did I doubt that you would assemble a fantastic Board. Secondly, we have now begun the new Fiscal year, which means that the 2019-2020 Officers, Directors and Trustees terms have officially begun, including the new President-elect. Thank you to all who answered the call and accepted the challenge.

We are all aware of the recent shooting at the Chabad in the San Diego area in late April – just when we thought we might be able to move beyond the Tree of Life shooting. This latest incident, along with additional school shootings, serves as a sad and unfortunate reminder that security must remain a priority. The ramp up of violence over the last 2 years has effectively ended our children being able to count on schools and places of worship as sanctuaries and safe havens.

In this article, I am going to step away from my usual topics and reflect on a social and societal topic. In recent months, I have been increasingly aware of concerning behaviors in school-age children that seem to be treated as more and more acceptable. Children have many sources of influence in their lives: parents and relatives, teachers, peers, elected leaders and celebrities, to name a few. All of the groups I just listed are supposed to be the people we have always expected and trusted to serve as role models. These are the people we have encouraged our children to look up to and, because of this, have been held to a higher standard.
