Chag Sameach!

Wishing all of you a very meaningful Pesach full of reflection, story telling, and song.
Introduce Yourself: Stuart Goldurs
What's Your Story?
Hello, my name is Stuart Goldurs and I am the youngest-oldest member of Temple Isaiah. I worked at the day camp, in the office, and at the religious school—I am the religious school audio-visual monitor emeritus. My parents were involved in the temple in many ways and my father was one of the original three ushers when the building opened in 1953.

Our Village On the Go
Members attended a stimulating talk by author of Wounds Into Wisdom , Rabbi Tirzah Firestone.
Everyone had a blast at this week's Line Dancing class. It's never too late to start dancing!
