“The achievement of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.” – Vince Lombardi

Shabbat Shalom!

As we are coming close to convention, and many of our affiliates, are planning for the coming year…this quote is especially meaningful.

Our convention team, led by Barbara Ezring and Renee Ravich, is truly the achievement of so many.  Each individual on this team, has worked tirelessly, to provide our membership with a convention that will be meaningful, exciting, educational and fun.  Yet, it takes many women, working together to make it all happen.  From our support staff, to our Directors, to our leadership and to all of you…it takes every individual, coming together, doing their part…and we will see the culmination of it all in just two weeks!

Our sisterhoods, our affiliates, regardless of what we do, it does take each individual working together to create a place for the women within our synagogue communities.  If there is just one thing, that I hope that yo keep in mind as we start thinking and planning for the 2017-2018 year…that it does take a village!  That is what makes this network of Conservative Jewish women so very special…it takes each of us, sharing ideas, giving of their time, and listening to one another..that combined effort to produce events and programs that will be of interest to many.  I know, that sometimes, it is a challenge to get individuals to come together, for the good of the organization…but with each of us reaching out, asking one person to help, to share an idea with…that combined effort will yield great results!  Maybe not the first time you ask, and maybe not even the second time…but for the good of each of our affiliates we must keep trying…we must let our women know that they are needed..that together we can accomplish so much more!

Wishing each of you a sweet, meaningful and peaceful Shabbat!
