Torah Discussion: Ed Stein
Our annual meeting held this past Sunday reflected a wonderful sense of participation by all present. The group discussions were particularly lively and will give the Board much to discuss in the months ahead. We are grateful to all attendees and especially to all those offering their useful evaluation and feedback. We move ahead to another year supported by a
committed and engaged congregation.
