January 2024 | Message from our President

Happy 2024!

Our community Chanukah oneg was well attended by members of the Interfaith Coalition, Beth El and Emanu-El members. We lit the flames of the new beautiful menorah in the garden. Thank you once again to Empire Recycling for donating the materials and labor to make our design come to fruition with the construction by Patrick Donahue.

Afterwards, latkes and sufganiyot were served and enjoyed by all. Thank you to Mundy, Judy, Mary and Ruth for the hours preparing the delicious latkes.

Thank you to the Chanukah dinner committee for another successful joint community event. How could you go wrong working with Leslie at the helm? It is always wonderful to bring the Jewish community together. Thank you to Rabbi Geier and Rabbi Schaktman for the program details and to the members of the choir for entertaining us. Now to plan Purim!

Temple Beth El's webpage is getting many hits and I would like to thank Sara Tisch for all her work updating temple on the social media platforms. Shortly, you will be able to make donations directly to temple online with Zeffy! This is a fundraising suite that is 100% free to use.

Rabbi Geier is busy with classes of all types and everyone is welcome to join. His number at temple is (315) 272-1755 if you have any questions.

One way to get warm this winter would be to come to Shabbat services and enjoy the delicious oneg and kiddush with your fellow members. Try it out once in a while and it will help to make our minyanim.

Wishing you health and happiness in 2024 and beyond,
