January 2024 President's Message

Dear Members,
It’s hard to believe that the first year of my presidency is over. I have learned so much and have been so impressed by all the hard work and all of the successes our Board of Directors and Committee Chairs have accomplished. Thank you to the VPs who keep everything running, to the Board for their dedication, insights and commitment, to the office staff and to everyone who has volunteered this year to make our programs and services meaningful, rewarding and fun.
This is a hard time, in a never-ending stream of hard times, to be a Jew. Anti-semitism is rising and hate crimes are seeming to flourish. Israel is under attack, not just from Hamas, but from voices all over the world who hold Israel to a standard that no other country follows. I may not agree with all the political policies of the state of Israel, but I stand with Israel as a Jew, as an American who lived in Israel, as the spouse of an Israeli and as someone who has always believed in the promise of a Jewish State. I support Israel in the ways that I can and encourage you to do the same.
Now and forever, Am Yisrael Chai!
Barbara
