Feb. 2014 Newsletter  



May, 2014


Last visit for the year for our student rabbi, Michael Danziger


Michael will be here for the final time May 9 and 10.  We will be unable to have him for next year because he has at least one internship lined up already.  Try to come that weekend so you can tell him how much you appreciate his having made that long trip so many times this year, and for having served us well during the year!


On Friday evening, May 9, our activities will be in the Social Hall, and they will start at 6:00 p.m.  We will have Shabbat services, our annual congregational meeting,and dinner(not necessarily in that order).  This will be a pot-luck, and you are supposed to bring a side dish, salad or dessert.  The meat dish will be provided, and you are asked to make reservations with Beth @270-554-5178.


The next morning, Sat. 5/10, there will be the last Mens Club/Sisterhood Brunch for the year at 10:00 a.m.  Adult Education will follow at approximately 10:45 a.m.  Make an effort to attend -----  the topic to discuss might end up being your favorite one!



Time to step up!


There are a number of opportunities for any members who desire to "step up" into leadership positions in our Congregation.  If you are willing to serve as a member of the Board of Trustees, or as an officer, please let me know.


The State of the Congregation


We are at a crucial point in our history.  Our building has been adequately maintained through the years, and our fiscal situation is excellent.  Our problem is that membership has been steadily declining for decades; we have not been replacing those who have left us.  An extra effort to cope with this will be needed from all of our members.  Be prepared to do your part!

PCM News – For April through June, our grocery items will be canned fruit

and tuna. Once again, please note that meal-in-a-can items, like Chef

Boy-R-Dee and chili, are always needed and welcome.
