My sincere thanks to the board of TBS for sending me to the URJ 4 day Zoom Scheidt Seminar for new temple presidents. Several of our past presidents have attended during their terms and assured me that the time would be well spent…and they were right! There were 143 new presidents of Reform congregations from 30 to over 1,000 family units so you can imagine the wealth of information shared in open chat rooms during the meetings. I am excited to share my notes from the seminar with my fellow board members this Sunday at our monthly board meeting, and I hope some of what I learned will be carried forward into our congregation. I am honored to be co-president of TBS with my partner, Jonathan Selinger, for the July 1, 2021-June 30, 2022 term.
