Honoring Jose Serna
Mr. Serna is the Conservative congregation’s longest tenured staff member. Since 1989, he has set up for countless numbers of celebrations, High Holiday services and just about everything else that happens at the synagogue. But at Saturday’s Ways and Means Dinner, more 200 people came to the shul. This time, they were there to honor Mr. Serna. He had 11 family members on hand, and at least five flew in from his native Colombia just to be with him at the dinner.
Rabbi Fine on Gun Violence Prevention -
"And so, my synagogue and I are engaging the issue of gun prevention, and on the Shabbat morning of March 15 we will be learning about the problem, finding out what we can work towards to better our society, joining with other houses of worship across the country and across denominational and faith lines, and praying that we be blessed with peace under God’s protective wing."
