Proposed New Slate of Officers and Trustees 2023-24

Dear WJC Congregants,

There will be a Congregational Meeting held in conjunction with the monthly Trustees Meeting on Monday, May 22  at 7:45pm. The meeting will be held both in the Activity Center (dinner provided) and via Zoom. Please see below for the Zoom link or call-in number.

During this meeting, members will vote on the proposed new slate of Officers and Trustees for the 2023-24 year (please see below). In addition, after hearing the recommendation of the Spiritual Life Committee, members will vote on whether to authorize the Officers to begin negotiations with Rabbi Arnowitz on an extension of his contract.

I look forward to seeing everyone then.
Larry Thaler
