It’s hard to believe, but as I write this, Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. It will be a fond memory by the time you read this, and that means Hanukkah will be approaching. With that comes the end of the year, and the board has promised to make a recommendation as to what should happen with the temple building at 900 Washington Street by that time.
There have been two committees formed, one to look at selling the building, and one to look at where we might go. Both committees have been hard at work, and we have had some developers express interest in the property. We have also been actively exploring other locations for the temple. As soon as we have enough information, we will pass it on, this will likely involve another meeting, like the one last December, and I hope that we have as much active participation as we had then.
There is no doubt that the past two years have been difficult ones for our temple community, and we have been faced with difficult decisions. What stands out for me is the way our community pulls together to face these challenges head on. I am grateful for the many times people have pulled me aside, and asked about what is going on. It shows that people care. In addition, many of those who were at the meeting last December took the initiative to become more involved as a result.
