The Rabbi Melvin and Lenore Sirner Fund For Jewish Inspiration Plaque Installed in Beth El Lobby

Dear Friends,

 

As you know, during the last year of Rabbi Sirner’s service to Beth El, we had a significant fundraising event to honor the forty- three years of Rabbi and Lenore Sirner’s devotion to our Shul. The money raised in 2015 established the Rabbi Melvin and Lenore Sirner Fund for Jewish Inspiration to preserve Rabbi Sirner’s legacy of caring at Beth El. The Fund’s purpose is to ensure that our synagogue center remains a warm and nurturing place for future generations, where Jewish values are learned and lived. It will reinforce our tradition of high quality programming while providing the opportunity to develop new and experimental formats for prayer, study and other experiences to enhance what Beth El has to offer its members and the community.

 

A specially-designed plaque with fused-glass lettering and a multicolor glass mosaic was installed in the Main Lobby of Beth El to recognize the major donors to the Rabbi Melvin and Lenore Sirner Fund for Jewish Inspiration. In creating the Fund, the Board of Trustees required that a Team comprised of Rabbi Schuck, the President, two trustees (Elise Schepp and Rob Patchen) and one member-at large (Lois Kohn-Claar) be tasked with researching and investigating ideas that can be sponsored by the Fund and presented to the Board of Trustees for approval. The Team has met and has future meetings scheduled already. The team is taking its task very seriously and is thoughtfully considering how the Fund can best meet its mission and the needs of our community. A proposal about the initial initiative should be presented to the Board of Trustees for approval by the end of the year.

 

While the recently installed plaque honors our major donors to the Fund, I would want to thank everyone who contributed to Rabbi Melvin and Lenore Sirner Fund for Jewish Inspiration.

 

See you in Shul,

Sam Berger, 

President
