Welcome to my news blog. The Communications committee realized that we are very diligent about posting and sending out information on our programs but have not followed up to let you know how the programs went. The success of our programs is due to countless hours of planning by the committees, auxiliaries, and staff. We cannot thank them enough. We measure success by the number of people that attend but also, and perhaps more importantly, by what the people that did attend learned and experienced. This blog gives me an opportunity to let our members and friends know about the results of our programs and many other things happening in the shul. And what a great week to get this started!
We had a wonderful turnout at the Lag B’Omer bonfire in Shaw Park with nearly 100 people attending. A huge thank you to Bob Olshan and Melissa Bellows for planning the celebration with the ice cream, fire truck and of course the bonfire. With some teaching from Rabbi Arnow and Evyatar Shachar (our Shinshin) and wonderful music from Karen Kern, we celebrated the holiday and our first large in-person event since the start of COVID-19. The outdoor venue allowed us to have the fabulous turnout while keeping each other safe.
Do you miss attending professional sporting events? Come cheer our two teams competing in The St. Louis Inter-Congregational Softball League this year: The Kol Rinah Maccabees and our combined team with Traditional Congregation, The Ball Mitzvahs. Sunday was opening day and our two teams played each other with the Ball Mitzvahs wrapping it up with a whooping 23 runs over the Maccabees 9.
The next games are on May 16th against United Hebrew and Shaare Emeth. Please watch the website homepage for the schedule details. Fans are welcome - bring masks, lawn chairs, sunscreen, water, and hats.
And in the building, the long-awaited installation of the coffee bar and other millwork is underway.
Until next week - Stacey
