Message from the President

Acting President Kim StrausserDear Friends,

Happy Passover! I hope you get to enjoy many family traditions during the days of Passover. I hope that many of you are inspired to join some of the activities here at Temple Beth Shalom that were listed in a recent communication by snail mail. And if you have not received snail mail from us recently, it may mean that we don’t have your correct address or that we haven’t heard from you in so long that you are not on our membership directory! Please let us know if you have a new address or if you need to renew your membership.

TBS is in need of your support in membership and leadership! Is a Jewish presence in the Hudson and surrounding area important to you? Jeanne Bluffstone and Mary Sheehan, two of our board members, recently posed this question to the board: Picture yourself in an elevator. You’re talking to the person next to you about Temple Beth Shalom and they ask, “What’s so special about the temple?” The elevator doors open and you have a second to answer before the person steps out so you blurt out THREE WORDS that best describe how you want the temple to be perceived. I would love to hear what words you hope would be used to describe TBS and I would love for you to help us to be the temple we want to be.

Please mark your calendars for June 14, 2019, at 7 PM. That is our annual congregation meeting and your chance to let us know that you care about TBS.

Kim Strausser
Acting president
