Our annual congregational meeting on Sunday was a great success! The weather cooperated by being just warm enough and just breezy enough. We began with a delicious brunch prepared and served by Roberta Tishman and her crew.  Rabbi Josh spoke about his vision for the new board and Mishkon and gave us a blessing.  Cindy gave her final State of the Shul speech and handed out certificates to members leaving the board and to Volunteer Extraordinaire Andy Bender for his many contributions this year. Then committee chairs talked about the work of their groups.
 
The board gave Cindy a beautiful tallis in appreciation of her four years as president, and Carole Stein gave her a gift certificate for some serious John Kelly chocolate (kosher, of course).
 
Teller Phyllis Sorter reported the election results:  President Carole Stein, Vice President Andy Bender, Vice President Michele Prince, Treasurer Sol Ortasse, Secretary Carol Felixson, Immediate Past President Cindy Goldstein, members Roz Silver, Roberta Tishman, Shiri Sassoon, Carol Davis, Susan Lindau, and Kevin Metzger.  The updated Bylaws also passed.
 
Incoming President Carole Stein shared her background and her vision for Mishkon’s future and what comes next for the Board, committees, and the congregation as a whole. More eating and schmoozing followed, and everyone went home satisfied

THERE'S MORE

 

   MEANINGFUL JUDAISM FOR EVERYONE

Where Venice meets Santa Monica, Mishkon serves western Los Angeles. Our welcoming community is egalitarian and participatory, and joyously traditional. Our synagogue embraces interfaith families with open arms.  Mishkon events and services emphasize music, food, spirit, and accessibility through our intimate and friendly community. Mishkon embraces the warmth of tradition while welcoming new thoughts and ideas. Much like its Venice environment, our unique character attracts people from every profession, including artists, writers, educators and intellectuals, who serve as each other’s extended family.
