Leadership

It has been a little over a month since I addressed the TNT community as incoming president of the congregation. Since then, we saw our rabbi's family grow, held the first meeting of our new Board of Trustees, kicked off our high holiday planning, committed to summer camp (August session), began planning for re-opening Shoresh preschool, watched our region move through the first few phases of re-opening from quarantine and snoozed through the MOST BORING 4th OF JULY IN HISTORY.

Unfortunately, we also witnessed a horrific act of racist murder, followed by expansive protest and civil unrest. All while COVID-19 continued its deadly and destructive crescendo throughout many other regions of the United States.

What's next? Well, the Rabbi is back from paternity leave, much to the relief of me, Cantor Greenberg, and our executive director, Michelle W. Malkin. So, we'll leave it all to him and check back in with you guys at the end of the summer!

Just kidding.

What's next is a look ahead to the coming year. Naturally, our HHD planning will shift into high gear as September draws closer. We are firmly committed to a remote worship experience, which will hopefully be joined by some safe but diffuse experiences in person. Along with those efforts is our planning for various phases of re-opening.

We're listening to feedback from many of you about the Zoom experience being a little stale, and we're looking to enhance our remote programming - both religious and otherwise - in order to maintain the connection, care and consistency you have come to rely on from TNT.

Finally, the murder of George Floyd - and the subsequent explosion of angst from the black community - has brought the reality of American inequality into stark relief for many of us. Our Tikkun Olam leaders as well as our clergy team are working to formulate a response to this reality that is ongoing, meaningful, and genuine.

I hope this summer will allow you some rest and relaxation.

Please stay safe, healthy and strong.
