A message from OVS President Michael Bouhadana

Thank you to all who attended services last Shabbat, honoring Rabbi Kassorla. It was beautiful to see a full sanctuary, and hear so many kind words about Rabbi Kassorla and our congregation. Thank you to everyone who helped make this tribute a success.

On Shabbat, we shared a reminder about the memory book being prepared for Rabbi Kassorla: please send your letters, memories and photos by December 31st (deliver to OVS office or email it to me).

Last weekend, we also held our annual general meeting, with reports from the sisterhood, and the rabbinic, finance, and nominating committees. We approved our 2020 budget and the incoming OVS board. Congratulations to all of our incoming board members.

At the general meeting, several members inquired about transparency in our processes. Please remember that OVS members are welcome to attend any board meeting, and minutes are available by request. Members are also welcome to bring new business to meetings. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

We will be holding a Hanukkah congregational dinner on Friday, December 27th. This dinner will be in honor of Rabbi Kassorla, and will feature his favorite menu.

We hope that you will be able to attend; the dinner is free for members, donations are encouraged. Please RSVP to the OVS office.

Shabbat Shalom,

Michael Bouhadana
