MEN’S CLUB MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

This month’s member spotlight shines on JAMES SINGMAN. Jim has been a member of Kol Rinah and the legacy Shaare Zedek for almost 60 years, and he has been active in our Men’s Club for the past 34 years. He currently holds the post of executive vice president. Jim also has served on Kol Rinah’s board of directors. He is one of our many cooks and is the go-to guy when any job needs doing.

As you may know, Jim is executive director of Beth Hamedrosh Hagodol Cemetery and is an active member of the Jewish Cemetery Association of North America. Before pursuing a career within the Jewish community, he held various management positions in the electronics industry. He is a graduate of the University of Missouri, Columbia and holds a masters degree from the University of Missouri, St. Louis.

Jim’s family is complemented by his daughter Lauren and his sisters Elise, Diane and Suzi (and a countless number of cousins). Jim has served our congregation in a variety of capacities throughout the years and always willingly contributes his time and services whenever and wherever he is needed.

The Men’s Club has decided to move board meetings to a weeknight evening to be determined later.

Men’s

MC MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

I’m introducing a new feature –
MC MEMBER SPOTLIGHT. Our first member of note is Steve Keyser. Steve has been a Men’s Club member for more than 30 years. He is quick to volunteer to cook for the annual Men’s Club Sports Night and take a full table and sponsor a round at our Trivia night. Steve is part of the crew that assembles and packs Yom HaShoah yellow candles to deliver to all Kol Rinah households.

He has supported the congregation as president, vice president, treasurer, board member, and as chair of the ritual, finance and membership committees. Through the memorial fund named for his late wife, Faye, Steve sponsors the Second Night Seder, Break-the-Fast, plus regular Shabbat and special kiddushes. He’s a loyal minyanaire, and you will frequently catch him leading the davening on Saturday mornings.

He also spent thirty years serving his country, retiring from the Air Force as a colonel. He brings to everything he does the qualities of hard work, loyalty and commitment developed as an Air Force officer. We are proud to have him as a member of the Men’s Club.

MEN’S CLUB RETREAT

On March 16 to March 18, Bob Olshan, Alan Schwartz, Richard Gavatin, Don Singer and I attended the Midwest Region of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Club retreat at Starved Rock State Park in Illinois. We prayed, we socialized, we dined we studied, we made new friends and we strengthened old friendships, with forty other Men’s Club members from B’nai Amoona, the Chicago area, and Milwaukee. It was a very productive weekend and your Kol Rinah Men’s Club members gleaned several great ideas for making our Men’s Club a better organization, as well as new ideas for events.
