Allow me to share a few thoughts as we approach the festival of Hanukkah, leading ultimately to the end of another year.
In my Kol Nidre message several months ago, I focused on the subjects of “Leadership” and “Financial Liquidity.” The High Holiday audience is obviously our largest and – as we had just elected new governing and Rabbinical leadership – offering details in these areas seemed timely and appropriate.
We offer our sincere condolences to Ron Sabelli on the death this week of his sister, Diane Siobert.
The funeral for Diane will be held Saturday (tomorrow) at St. Charles Church at 10:00 a.m.. There will be calling hours at 9:00 a.m.
May her memory be for a blessing
