The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

The Annual Meeting of the Membership was held last night at the shul.  Rabbi Weinberg gave a nice invocation that was followed by my 'state of the shul' address and the Treasurer's report and budget proposal for the next fiscal year.

I want to thank the membership for their vote of confidence.  Being re-elected as President is an honor and an opportunity for us to work together again this year.  Thank you!

I also want to congratulate the other newly elected (and re-elected) officers and directors: Robin Walker (Vice-President), Jordan Lee Wagner (Treasurer), Sarah Boling (Secretary/Clerk), Nancy Knight (Director), Meir Lakein (Director), Steve Cantor (Director), and Matt Kramer (Director).  I look forward to working with these dedicated individuals and the rest of the board in the weeks and months to come.
