Annual Meeting Notice

 

Dear Fellow Congregant:

Pursuant to Article V of the Brith Shalom Constitution, this letter serves as notice that the Annual meeting will take place on Thursday, May 19, at 7:00 pm in the Synagogue social hall. At the meeting, we will elect two new board members and re-elect the current officers, approve the proposed annual budget for 2016-2017, and hear selected committee reports. There will be an open FAC meeting on Tuesday, May 17, where you will have an opportunity to review the budget and ask questions. At the annual meeting I will also provide a brief “State of the Shul,” identifying highlights from last year.

Printed material will be forwarded to you within the next week. Please note we will need at least 56 families in good financial standing in order to have a quorum which is needed in order to vote on the board election, the proposed budget for the next fiscal year, and any other pertinent manners brought before the membership at the meeting. All members in good standing (an Annual Giving balance that is less than 45 days in arrears as of the meeting date, as defined by the constitution) are eligible to vote and count toward a quorum. If you have any questions regarding your account or status please contact Larry Estes, Executive Director, or Gwen Richards in our Accounting Department. We need all members to attend to ensure we have a quorum (estimated at 57 member units, as of April 29) in order to conduct business. Please plan to attend this important meeting.

B’Shalom,

Jeffrey K. Actor,

President

We recently hosted an interfaith seder with St. Theresa Catholic Church. It was a meaningful and energetic celebration of friendship and a learning experience for both of our communities.

Last week, the unexpected happened. A rainy Sunday evening turned into a life-changing event where flooding of epic proportions took Houston, quite literally, by storm. This week's blog is just one small step to let those in need know that Congregation Brith Shalom is here to support those affected by the flood.

A historic compromise that redefines the relationship between religion and state in Israel has been reached! After 25 years of fraught negotiations, for the first time in the history of the State of Israel, non-orthodox Judaism has achieved formal status in our holiest of places - the Kotel.
