Welcoming A New Year
Written for Temple Gates of Prayer Bulletin, Fall 2011
About this time last year, Sarah and I had just moved into our new home in Flushing and began what has proven to be a wonderful new adventure in New York. I recall my own excitement and delight at the fact that I had “made it” to be a Cantor in a New York City shul (that’s a very big deal out in California!). What I did not yet know was how truly lucky we both are to be at Temple Gates of Prayer.
TGP has really proven itself to be what most shuls try to be, but a very precious few ever attain - a mishpacha, a real family. We have made some very deep and special friendships within the community and have found each and every one of you to be such a special part of our lives as we establish ourselves in New York. From the wonderful programs to the very spiritual services, from simchas to some of life’s darkest moments, we have been very lucky to be with you, and have been fortunate to have you in our lives.
As we prepare to begin a New Year, Sarah and I wish you and your families from the bottom of our hearts a year filled with happiness, joy, success, good fortune, blessings of sweet moments with family and friends, and most of all health.
I look forward to greeting you all at High Holy Day services this year, and seeing you at some of the exciting programs we have in store for the coming year.
