Thank Yous

From Board President Robin Frisch

I want to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to all who helped make our High Holy Days special and meaningful this year and to make the last High Holy Days in our building a joy for all. There is an excitement and momentum happening right now at our temple that we can almost touch. TEMV is going to ride this wave of energy and enthusiasm right into our future! I can’t wait to see what lies ahead. I know that whatever our future holds, it is going to be something that we all will want to be a part of, as we reimagine TEMV in 5779! Shanah Tovah!
