Yom Kippur Appeal 5779


A Message from Rabbi Wolkenfeld:


Dear Anshe Sholom,

The coming new year, 5779, is poised to be one of growth, innovation, renewal, and recommitment to the core values that have guided our congregation for generations.

Rabbanit Leah Sarna, our inaugural Director of Religious Engagement has already begun to rethink and revise the ways that our community transmits our traditions and values to our children. Her Torah scholarship has informed and inspired those who have studied with her, and in the coming months, her impact on our community will be profound.

During the summer, a committee of the shul’s leadership met with a team of architects and started the process that we hope will lead to a significant renovation of our aging building and transform it into a space that meets the needs of our congregation for the next 60 years.

As these exciting new developments have progressed, the sacred cycle of day following day, week following week, has continued unabated. The daily minyan is reliable and friendly. Shabbat services are well-attended by children, students, professionals, and retirees. The shul is a source of support during difficult times and mourners are comforted.

The indispensable ingredients for our shul’s bright future are your continued belief in the future of ASBI, your commitment to participate in our community, and your generous contribution to the Yom Kippur Appeal.

The Yom Kippur Appeal is a core source for the funding that gives ASBI the financial resources to turn your commitments and our common vision into a reality that we can all experience and enjoy.

Please accept my family’s best wishes for a happy, healthy, and fulfilled 5779.

Shannah Tovah,
Rabbi David and Sara Wolkenfeld

Noam, Akiva, Hillel, Sophie, & Yonatan
