Message from the President
I want to start by thanking Chanie & Boruch Bernstein and Ayelet & Michael Shore for chairing the end of summer BBQ. Big thanks all those who helped with the food,
manning the booths and activities. There were over 300 people in attendance! This event was just the right way to end the summer. Please look for the pictures that
are hanging by the Shul office. Thank you to Shlomo Horwitz who sang and inspired us before Selichos this past Motzei Shabbos. This was our inaugural Kumzitz
before Selichos! Thank you to Mordechai and Rochel Diamond for initiating and implementing the Pre-Yom Tov Mall Event this past Sunday. We had over 35
different vendors participate! Going to one place with lots of vendors made Yom Tov shopping just a little easier… Also, I am excited to report to that our new
Shomrei Emunah Website ( has been launched and is live! Thank you to Natan Berry and Adam Edelman for their collaboration and input in
this project. Hopefully, you will use this new tool.
There are many styles in which to prepare for a big event. Some people
might begin way in advance, while others wait to the last possible minute.
At Shomrei Emunah, we began thinking of Rosh Hashanah as far back as
last year Motzei Rosh Hashanah—and really started to gear up in May.
Our goal and focus in our preparation for the holiest days of the year was
to continue our commitment to spiritual growth. We are striving for greater
heights by trying to engage in more learning, davening with more kavanah
and by giving more Tzedakah. Since that time, we have accomplished…
• The office staff, Shira and Rivky, sending out the Yomim Noraim
    mailing, organizing the reservations, and preparing the Yom Tov
• The seating committee, Hilly Kagan, Larry Ziffer and Avi Zuckerbrod,
    talking to our members and assigning seats to best fit everyone’s needs
• The Gabbei Tzedakah, Yosef Wolf, collecting and dividing the extra
    Tzedakah collections
• David Zuckerbrod, compiling the Book of Life
• Hillel Soclof, overseeing the memorial plaques
• The Gabbaim, David Bienenstock, Myron Froehlich, Tzvi Atlas, Chaim
    Wealcatch and Alan Taragin, preparing for both Minyanim
• Yosef Shpilman, organizing the tables for the auxiliary minyan
• Rosemary Warschawski and Shimmy Weichbrod, compiling and
    publishing the Kol Hashomrim publication
• The Sisterhood, Leah Berry, Rebbetzin Marwick and Risa Levi arranging
    the babysitting program
• The many Baalei tefillah, Baalei Kriah, and Baalei Tekiah have been
    practicing and preparing
• The members who have been researching and learning in order to give
This list goes on and on….
As you can see from the preparation of the Yomim Noraim and the most
recent events listed above, nothing falls into place at Shomrei Emunah
without the dedication of selfless individuals for our Tzibur. For that, we all
applaud them and say THANK YOU for your endless devotion to our Shul.
I want to take this opportunity to personally wish you and your family a
Shana Tova U’Mesuka and a Chasiva V’Chasima Tova. Thank you for your
support, encouragement, and dedication to our Kehilla. And may we
continue to share in many simchos with each other, B’ezras Hashem, this
coming year in Yerushalayim.
Have a wonderful Shabbos and a good yom tov,
