The President's Corner

Just when we think that the virus status and peoples lack of respect for rights and property has peaked, the situation changes for the worse.


Hopefully, many of you availed yourself of Joliet Area Community Hospice Covid grief program because our mental health response to our current challenges is critical to our positive survival.


Speaking of positive ideas, we will try to re-start inperson Sabbath services on Saturday, July 11 at 9:30 AM. The following weekend, our Rabbinical candidate Rabbi Kuvin is scheduled for a site visit and may conduct both Friday evening and Saturday morning Sabbath services, either individually or in conjunction with Rabbi Rubovits. Friday evening will be, weather permitting, an outside musical service. More information on Saturday morning assigned seating will be due soon.


Anne Frank’s quote, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world” is very good for now. Together we can improve our congregation and secular world. We just need to get started. So, let’s go one step forward at a time. Progress starts with each of us.
