Two Letters of Accolates & Appreciation:
Thank you for helping lead us in a most moving service last week April 20th. You modeled what can be accomplished in the spirit of brotherhood when men put their hearts and minds together for a common goal. What you accomplished on Friday was heartfelt and very moving and a real tribute to the state of Israel on her 70th anniversary. Special thanks to Eddie for helping inspire us once again toward beautiful music and also to Rich. He and I met early and often and it's due to Rich's incredible vision and dedication that everything became a reality.
In addition, I was deeply moved by the elegant and beautiful picture frame from everyone and presented so thoughtfully by Marc and Jim. Please accept my deep thanks. Whoever picked it out has a "pleasant" eye, indeed. It has been a true pleasure to be with you these past three years and to share community and music together.
I have really enjoyed reviewing the recordings from last week. Please extend my sincere thanks to the other brothers who participated in the service.

I want to congratulate you on a wonderful sing last Friday evening. You sang with such spirit and fervor that you drew music from the congregation itself, which is a double success. Listen particularly to "Sabbath Prayer" and "The Exodus Song". Two songs that show you range as singers. "Shalom Rav" was particularly gorgeous. All was super! Here is an audio link to the entire service. Please forward to the entire brotherhood so they can hear their parts too. This is one of my favorite services in our year. You guys do so much for the community and beyond. The Brotherhood Shabbat is a celebration of your lives of service. That's why it comes across so authentically. You walk the walk and not just talk the talk. You all were truly awesome!

Our Midnight Runs bring clothing and provisions to the homeless in Manhattan at night. Learn more about Midnight Run What is Midnight Run written by Steve Samuels, and/or contacting Peter Goldich <[email protected]>. Brotherhood organizes Midnight Runs to NYC on Saturday nights with students from TINW Center For Jewish Learning. For more information about Midnight Runs and about the types of clothing we need to collect, read Sought After Items. if you are interested in participating in a Run, whether you go on the Run or not, we need help at the Temple at 1pm on the day of the Run to sort clothing and make sandwiches. You'll enjoy the process.
Sunday Breakfast Brunch Lecture Series
