From the President-Marsha Gewirtzman

April 2018 was a month Synagogue Emanu-El will long remember. On April 14th, we celebrated our 70th anniversary and honored Anita Zucker. The extraordinary committee, led by Marilyn Hoffman, Janet Friedman, Joan Halushka, Linda Krawcheck and Sunny Steinberg, appropriately named the celebration “A Star is Born to Feed the World.” Mazel Tov to our synagogue, to Anita, and to so many congregants who made this a success.

On May 5th, I will be honored to be installed as President of our synagogue. Craig Browdy will be our President-Elect. We are privileged to have a high-energy board that represents many geographies, age demographics and talents. Diversity brings creativity and the best decisions. Craig and I thank everyone who has agreed to serve.

Speaking of “thanks,” I know I represent you as we thank Paul Lynch. Paul’s thoughtful, disciplined approach to the president job has positioned us for future success. He has promised to continue to provide help and advice. Paul, our sincere appreciation. With their terms having expired, Evelyn Delson, Dennis Fisher and Laura Zucker will be leaving the board. Their commitment has made an impact.

Let me end my first Scroll article with an adage that makes me enthusiastic to take this position: success is a team sport. It is not just our talented officer team, board and staff, it is each and every one of you. Make the question not if you want to do something in the synagogue, but what you want to do?
