From Our President
By Laura Weiss
It’s a busy Jewish month for the Great Falls Hebrew Association. Our Jewish weekend is May 20 to 22. Since the weekend falls on Lag B’omer, we will be having a bonfire at the home of Wendy and Aaron Weissman on Saturday evening to mark the occasion. May 25 there will be a Soul Train event. Dr. Dror Eydar, Ph.D., a lecturer in Literature, Jewish thought and History, will be in Great Falls to give a lecture and musical performance. And on Sunday May 22, there will be a GFHA board meeting at 3pm at the old Washington school, 1015 1st Avenue North.
This upcoming board meeting is an important one. As many of you know, because of the shrinking size of our community, we will need to change the way we schedule events through the year. We can no longer afford to bring a service leader to Great Falls on a monthly basis. We will need to be creative in our scheduling and in how we stay engaged and cohesive as a community. As always, the board needs to hear from the rest of the community so we can be responsive to your needs and make choices that shape our future guided by your input. If you cannot attend the meeting, talk to a board member to make sure your voice is heard.
