Congregational life calls for the nurturing of our souls through worship, education and social action. However, the glue that binds all, lies within the relationship between members. Last Saturday evening, thanks to the gracious hospitality of Jim and Wendy Schreiber, the tireless efforts of past president Helen Stark and Sisterhood president Pamela Toper,and under the auspices of the GRS Congregational Life Task Force Committee chaired by Cheryl Probst, a wonderful gathering of our GRS family, including new and prospective members took place. Although it was intended that the Summer Splash would include swimming, tennis and cocktails around the pool, Mother Nature had other plans. However, inclement weather could not put a damper on the GRS spirit as inside we all enjoyed delicious food, drinks, desserts and most of all one another.
Our evening drew to a close with the making of Havdallah, as we bid a farewell to Shabbat, and we owe a special thanks to Bob Stark for his accompaniment on the guitar.
How awesome it was as we stood arm in arm and shared this sacred moment together.
Yes, synagogue life must be grounded in Torah, but it is the fellowship of the members which brings Torah to life.
We look forward to you joining us for our upcoming events!
Rabbi Andrew R. Sklarz, MA, MSW, RJE
