I continue to be amazed at the variety of things we do with our resources!
We are very fortunate to have group of volunteers always willing to pitch in and give 100+% in their efforts!
I am very excited about the training Rabbi and I did with USCJ Sulam for Emerging Leaders- Very interesting ideas, not
just for the Emerging Leaders program, but ideas for our overall membership. More to come on this program in coming
Here are some interesting new ideas:
Streaming of Purim Spiel and some of Rockin Shabbat on Facebook
Use of our courtyard for Friday evening services
Be on the look for plans this summer to hold Friday night services in Milledgeville and Warner Robins. Thanks to Ellen
Goodrich for sharing an idea she observed at shul in Savanah. (Keep those suggestions coming as to programming you
see or hear of at other shuls!)
By now I assume you have received notice of increase in dues. Nobody likes to see increases in dues. As noted in the dues
notification letter, we continue to strive to reduce expenses. At some point, you can only cut so far. Your CSI Finance
Committee and Board feel that it is very important that we work with a balanced budget. While we have a strong balance
sheet, we consistently strive to have an operational budget that breaks even. As said in my speech at the High Holidays,
109 family units! That is it. We need your support to maintain our Shul to keep things running as they are.
