The Temple Beth Shalom board of directors would like to wish a wonderful journey to our most amazing religious school director, Stefani Carlson. She let me know last week that she has accepted a position of Director of Congregational Learning at Congregation Emanu El in Houston, effective July 1. This will be a return to Texas and she will join her son’s future in-laws in Houston. Although I am very, very sorry to see Stefani leave our little temple, I am so pleased that she led our religious school and many other educational endeavors for the past four years! She is truly a knowledgeable, hard-working and creative leader. I will miss her leadership skills and her presence at TBS! Please join me in wishing her many good things in her future. The board will be looking for a new religious school leader in the coming weeks. The board is open to ideas and suggestions, so please contact Kim or Eric if you would like to be part helping us make this important decision.
