Frank2On behalf of the Board of Directors of ENJC, it is my honor as President to be the first to wish you and your family a happy and healthy New Year! I am looking forward with great anticipation to seeing you all on Wednesday night, September 24, 2014 – 1 Tishri, to celebrate the New Year 5775.

While most of our congregants are relaxing during these summer months, our dedicated Board of Directors and committee members are hard at work planning and coordinating the High Holidays. These congregants, who have volunteered to serve on the Congregation, Sisterhood and Men's Club Boards and committees, are busy planning all of the synagogue and family events for the year. The Rabbi will be writing his sermons and Chazan will be working with our outstanding choir, as well as preparing to lead our High Holiday services. It is my hope that you not only participate in some of our outstanding programs, but that you become involved in the planning process.

I am honored and excited to serve as your Congregation President and I look forward to greeting each of you and wishing you a L'Shanah Tova at ENJC during the High Holidays.
