President's Message
Howard Sislin

As a long-time member of White Meadow Temple, first as a child and now as an adult and parent, reinstating our evening weekly minyan was personally important to me.  I'd like to thank those who have come out during our first few weeks in spite of some challenging weather conditions.  Please note that we will communicate via email and Facebook in the event we have to cancel an evening minyan due to inclement weather. Note also that it is always a good idea to send the office an email to let them know you need a minyan on a specific night.

The inclement weather has also created some challenges in the office, so we ask for your patience as we take care of the necessary remediations. Please watch your email for communication about office hours and closings.

I'm thrilled to announce that Stephanie Adams has assumed the role of Office Assistant as of Tuesday, January 16.  Stephanie brings a unique combination of personal, administrative, financial and technical skills. For the past three years, Stephanie worked at the JCC in the Early Childhood Department in West Orange. Prior to the JCC, Stephanie worked at Summit Camp and Travel as Registrar and Office Manager. Please join me in welcoming Stephanie to the White Meadow Temple family!

Our next Kabbalat Shabbat will be held on Friday, February 2 at 7:30 PM and will feature Karol Yorlany Ruiz, Esq., who will speak to us about the controversial “Sanctuary Cities”, “illegal immigration”, the power of our federal government agency ICE, and its changes that have occurred in different Presidential administrations. Dessert will be served.  Be sure to RSVP to the office (973-627-4500) so we can properly plan our refreshments.

As always, if you would like to join a committee or have a suggestion for an event or how we can do things better, please contact me at  My ears are always open!

 See you around the Shul. Stay warm and healthy,



White Meadow Temple
