My wife, Sue, and I hope you and your families had a wonderful Chanukah and, like us, are looking forward to a far better and safer New Year!

On November 30th, the Beth Israel Men’s Club co-hosted a Zoom program with Wells Fargo Financial Advisors. All members of the Men’s Club, Sisterhood, and the Temple were invited, and although the turnout was light, we learned a few things that we didn’t know before. That’s always a positive thing!

We were thrilled to join Sisterhood in co-hosting Beth Israel’s first virtual Chanukah Party on December 13th, where a great time was had by all! Thanks to all who made the afternoon as special as it was.

December 16th heralded the virtual return of Dr. Susan MacManus, who spoke on “Looking Back at Election 2020: A Focus on Florida.” The Zoom program was well attended, and we can’t thank Nina Malinak enough for stepping up to the plate to help us coordinate the event.

More programs are in the works for after the first of the year. At the top of our list are return “visits” by Dr. Steven Derfler and a representative from NOAA. Notifications and specific details will follow as soon as plans are finalized.

Until next month,
