Whether it is polishing all the silver Torah finials, replacing lightbulbs, setting up chairs or swapping out machzorim, there are tremendous people who all get together to help make us ready for these important days.
While I won’t name everyone involved in these and the many other activities necessary to make us ready, it is important for the volunteers to know that we all thank them for their contribution to making our holidays what we’ve come to expect. The work that they each put into making our sanctuary ready, preparing for the Junior Congregation services and activities, hiring our new Chazan and preparing our break fast food are all pieces of our High Holiday experience. When all runs smoothly we sometimes don’t even notice the many parts involved but without our Ushers, or our Torah readers, or our maintenance staff we would have a much, much different experience during our time of self-reflection. If you know someone who helps with any of the parts of our holiday experience, please thank them.
L’Shanah Tovah and Tzom Kal.
