Dear fellow Temple Israel Congregants,

In an effort to avoid confusion and encourage transparency, we wanted to send out a quick message to our Shul community regarding last night’s Board Meeting and our short-term future. Following the resignation of our Synagogue’s President and Executive Vice President, the Board of Trustees, under the authority granted in the Temple Israel Constitution, elected Gary Ginsburg to serve as President and Eric (Rick) Schwartz to serve as Executive Vice President for the remaining months of this current term. We are deeply humbled by this opportunity to serve and we thank Bob and Ken for their hard work and dedication to Temple Israel.

Over the months to come, the Board of Trustees will be finalizing the budget and continuing efforts to strategically plan for the future. Temple Israel members who are interested in taking a more active role in these processes are encouraged to contact our Main Office or Gary to discuss ways you can join committees and take on volunteer leadership roles.

Thank you all very much,

Gary Ginsburg and Rick Schwartz
