I hope everyone had an enjoyable Chag this past week. The excitement at Etz Chaim rolls on as we get ready for our annual BBQ celebration this coming week. I hope everyone has made reservations to attend this year's event.
We will be honoring the Janoff family who have done so much for our Shul and our entire community. We will also be paying homage to the Kapustin family and their decades of service to Etz Chaim. Perhaps even more importantly, we will honor our beloved Shul by showing our support by attending the event and by contributing generously to this major fundraiser.
We are told in the Parsha how each Nasi - Prince of each tribe in Israel gave his dedication offering when the Mishkan opened. They displayed their love and devotion through their service while giving of their resources. We ask you to do the same. Please show your love and devotion to Etz Chaim in the same manner.
I look forward to seeing everyone there - no ties allowed!
