President's Message
Howard Sislin


​As I reflect on my first year as president, I am energized by all the wonderful things happening at White Meadow Temple. The new daycare is coming along nicely, with plans to open by the start of the school year if not sooner. The 2018/2019 executive committee and board of trustees are busy planning for the high holy days and new fiscal year. We’re even upgrading the sound system to better address our needs going forward.

Come out and meet your committee members at our upcoming congregational meetings later this month. Attend a board of trustees meeting on the second Sunday morning of each month to hear how your fellow members are working to make our synagogue community even stronger. Come to Shabbat services. Better yet, get involved with a committee of your liking!

As the new fiscal year begins, I offer my heartfelt thanks to our outgoing trustees -- Rich Chassen, Lynne Gaines, Jeff Cohen, Elaine Mico, Stuart Lefkowitz and Paula Lefkowitz -- and wish the current board continued satisfaction and success.

I’d also like to say Mazal Tov to Mitch Wainer on his retirement and thank him for his generosity over the years, most recently for printing an ample supply of legacy brochures for us to keep on hand.

I would also like to thank Fariba Margerefteh for her extraordinary service as president of our Sisterhood for the past several years. We are grateful to have such an active Sisterhood and look forward to seeing the group flourish under new leadership in the years to come.

Be sure to watch your email for announcements, including notification of minyan services. Until then, I hope to see you in Shul.
