Spring of 2022 brought a return to Kabbalat Shabbat at the beach and holiday celebrations for Purim, Pesach, Lag B’Omer, and Shavuot — creative, safe and spirited multi-generational celebrations including cooking and food, music, text study, and services. Our marvelous Rabbi Katzan has many exciting ideas for rebuilding our community, our preschool is growing and thriving, and our office staff has implemented new, streamlined procedures. Mishkon is back.
With that comes the energy of some eager new directors, officers, and committee chairs, to build on the drive of our talented staff. I am excited to get started as your 5783 president on July 1. But my last act as membership chair is simple: to launch our annual membership drive!
Dues have not increased for the last few years. For those who do want to do a little more, there’s an important membership category: Chai – the Momentum Builder, which is an easy, all-inclusive monthly installment plan. For a little more than the Standard Membership, the Chai Momentum Builder is a simple way to accomplish that goal. It will accelerate our progress. If you have the means, we would be grateful for your commitment at this level.
A note about the building and security assessments, which are part of our dues structure: In the past year alone, these contributions have funded essential restoration, repairs, and improvements, including the flagstone portico, steps, and patio in front; reduction of water intrusion; seismic safety valves on gas lines; vandalism repair on the front doors; and plumbing. The security assessment has funded 3 new cameras, among other items. We thank you for including these assessments with your dues payment.
You, the members of Mishkon, are why this amazing and unique congregation and its vibrant preschool thrive. You make the difference. Your membership renewal is vital. Think of how much you have gained from Mishkon and from what its members and leaders have provided to enrich our lives. Now it is your chance to pay it forward! Please take part and renew today.
