Thank you Jane

It is with mixed emotions that I announce the retirement of Jane Kelly, our synagogue's bookkeeper. She has provided us with 29 years of devoted service. I don't know how we will get along without her as she has a memory like an elephant! Ruth has some enormous shoes to fill.
Jane's attention to detail, while keeping the broader picture in mind, has been invaluable. Her willingness to put in extra time and effort to help us meet deadlines has demonstrated a commitment to excellence that we have come to depend upon. I personally owe her a huge debt of gratitude for all the times she has helped keep me on track, on time, and within our budget; not to mention making sure all Jewish rituals, laws, and rules of the synagogue are followed. In addition to her incredible competence and skill, she has been a longtime friend to staff and to our congregants with her thoughtfulness and quiet encouragement.
Jane has witnessed and worked with five Rabbis, eight Executive Directors, and 15 Presidents during her tenure. Jane has the most thoughtful husband anyone can hope for, Ray; three children, Allison, Joy, and Paul; and two grandbabies, Lucy and Rio Jane, and a new one on the way with expected delivery in March!
I invite you to join me in showing Jane our tremendous appreciation at a retirement party that will be held in our social hall on Sunday, October 29th at 6pm. We invite everyone to attend and share your memories of working with Jane, and to wish her a wonderful retirement. Jane's last day in the office is Wednesday, October 11th. Stop by with well wishes, if not, we'll hope to see you on the 29th. More information to follow...
