President's Message
Dear AAUW Members,

There is a learning curve associated with almost anything that is valuable to master. Several of us are on that learning curve as we discover the time we will save and the professional look of our Hotline and flyers. Please be patient with us as we learn about Constant Contact.

Part of that includes making sure we have input all members' names and email addresses correctly. It's a tedious endeavor and easy to misread a letter or number. Again, we ask for your patience. Please let me know is anyone remarks that they are not receiving the Hotline. I'll be asking at meetings as well. Many of us were teachers and remember that 1st grader struggling with the alphabet. But soon we will be reading the classics.

God in the Wilderness

Temple Beth Shalom

Presented at the Richardson Center of Indian River State College

Rabbi Michael Birnholz arrived at Temple
Beth Shalom in Vero Beach in 2002. Over 15 years he has been in Indian River County. Rabbi Birnholz has also enjoyed his wide variety of community opportunities to teach and preach Jewish values and wisdom, in person at various events or through his column in the Vero Beach Weekly. His hope is to build Temple Shalom into a house of wholeness, completeness and peace and see these efforts spreead caring, compassion and harmony to the whole Treasure Coast.
