President's Log
The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

The Board of Directors of the Adams Street Shul has established a new endowment fund, called the "Grand Family Kiddush Fund" in honor of Bert Grand for his many years of dedicated service to the Adams Street Synagogue. The Fund's principle will be invested (along with our other endowed funds) in the CJP's Jewish Community Endowment Pool. Income from the Fund will enable the Board to sponsor kiddushes from time to time when no individuals have done so.

The Fund has been launched with a donation from Russell Grand, son of the Shul's Chairman of the Board Bert Grand, together with the rest of the Grand Family. The Board and the Grand Family encourage all of us to make donations to the Fund in honor of Bert, and so that Shabbos kiddushes will someday always be sponsored, either by individuals or the Fund. (Every $720 raised can provide one kiddush per year.)

Bert served as President of the Shul for many years, shepherding our transition from an historic building open only several times a year, to a thriving, active Jewish community. And his many other volunteer activities extend beyond his tenure as President.
This is a wonderful gift. Mazal Tov to Bert on this well-deserved honor!
