Dear Friends,

Welcome to the 100th YEAR of continuous services at Congregation Temple Beth-El. We hope everyone had a wonderful healthy winter. We are very excited to welcome everyone back. This year Rabbi Neal Loevinger will be returning as will Cantor Lenny Zimmerman.

In honor of our 100th year we are planning a celebration at the end of the summer, tentatively September 10th, with details to follow. Details will follow. We are also creating an anniversary journal to commemorate the occasion. You are encouraged to be part of the journal by creating a page or a portion of a page. We will have a section for In Memorial and In Honor of at a cost of just 25.00 for a listing. More information to follow. If you would like to solicit advertisements for the journal, contact Mike Kossove 718-938-0467.

Also, note that our annual meeting of the general membership is scheduled for Sunday July 30th, 2023 @ 10:30 AM at the synagogue. Officers will be elected.

New windows and a door have been installed in the downstairs making it possible to once again hold our lunch and learn sessions with Rabbi Neal, along with our fabulous kiddush. The construction labor was donated by Mickelson and Sons builders. We thank them for their generosity.

Services will begin on Friday June 30 at 8;00pm. Saturday services will be at 9:30. The first kiddush is being sponsored by Lenny and Susan Zimmerman in honor of their 60th anniversary. Mazel tov!

Everyone is invited to attend services and the lunch and learn sessions and to volunteer. We can always use help setting up and cleaning up for kiddush. If you can help organize the anniversary party let us know. If you would like to lead a portion of the shabbat service or the High Holdiay services, contact Lenny Zimmerman or Rabbi Neal.

Please note that the address of the synagogue is now PO BOX 645, Kauneonga Lake, NY 12749. For those who mail checks be sure to change this in your bank accounts. Help welcome Rabbi Neal back by attending services on June 30 and July 1.

For the Board of Directors,

Larry Seitelman – President
