November 2018 President's Message

As this is my first President’s column since the completion of the High Holidays season, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the hard work and dedication of so many to make our High Holiday services, meals and celebrations a wonderful, warm, community experience. I hope everyone had a meaningful, inclusive and joyful holiday season.

Hopefully by the time you read this, you will have received a survey asking about your experiences throughout the High Holidays, and you have completed that survey. We are committed to providing the best programming possible and need your feedback to guide us. Please contact leadership at any time to express your concerns, challenges, praises and other remarks. We want to know what we are doing right and we also want to know what we can improve upon. We are your community. With everyone’s participation and recommendations we can better provide the services and experiences to enrich all our lives. Let us know how we may meet your needs and interests.

Before we know it, it will be December and time for our annual Congregational meeting. This year we will be holding our meeting on Sunday, December 9 at 1:30pm in the upper auditorium. We will be voting on a new two year term for Board officers and a three year term for eight new board directors. The nominating committee has been hard at work. If you are interested in better understanding our governance and the specifics of the roles of officers, board directors and committee structure, our Bylaws can be found on the Kol Rinah website at www.kolrinahstl.org.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the excitement and dedication of our Facilities and Capital Campaign Committees among many others, who continue to work literally day and night to realize our new home on Maryland Avenue. Thanks so much for your continued generosity and support. Please continue to help as you are able, as everyone’s participation makes a clear, measurable and meaningful difference, especially as we continue to assess what we can afford to build in the first phases of our project.

As always, it is my pleasure and my honor to serve you as Kol Rinah President. Thanks for all you do to enrich our community.

Zei Gesundt,

Randi Mozenter
