A Message From the President


It is a daunting task to be thrust into the role of President. There is a lot to catch up on and learn. I will do my best to further the goals of NJC.

One of my main goals is to increase membership. Attrition is slowly decreasing our numbers. We need to reach out to the unaffiliated Jews in our community to invite them to join us. Each of you is an ambassador for our congregation. Please, if you meet a prospective member, try to have them join us at services. Give their name(s) to Marilyn Goldenberg so membership can follow up.

Now that we're back in person for services, I urge you to attend. There is a very warm feeling of praying and singing together that one simply cannot get on Zoom.

Another way to get together is to watch for the announcements and come to the Flamingle gatherings. These are designed for us to to mix and get to know one another. The first one was a great success, learning things about each other.

Adult Ed. Is a great way to grow intellectually. Rabbi Herman has chosen fascinating and timely subjects. Watch the weekly E-news to register for these Tuesday 7:00 PM Zoom meetings.

Finally, here's a painless way to donate to NJC: Just sign up at and then buy from Amazon through that URL. Amazon will then donate .5% of your putchase to NJC. No money comes out of your pocket. If you are not doing this already, please do so to donate at no cost to you.

Let us all work together to strengthen “The Small Temple with the Big Heart.”

Charles Flum, President
