Weekly Message from our Board President
They’re playing our song… lots of them! This Sunday, the Mt. Sinai Endowment Fund is presenting its second annual Father’s Day concert. There will be two acts this time…. Jalan Crossland and Sally and George.
Here’s a quick blurb about Jalan Crossland from his website, JalanCrossland.com: “Jalan Crossland is an “endemic Wyoming treasure” (Rita Basom- Wyoming Arts Council). He is widely acclaimed by audiences, critics, and his musical peers as being a premier acoustic guitarist, as well as banjo player, singer-songwriter, and engaging showman. In recognition for his contribution to the arts in Wyoming, he was bestowed with the Governor’s Arts Award in 2013.”
The other act is Sally and George, who performed at the Synagogue last year. “Sally” is Shelby Means, daughter of Sherri and Warrie Means of our Synagogue, and “George” is Joel Timmons, her husband. From SallyandGeorge.com:
“Means and Timmons took on the name Sally & George as a tribute to Means’ dapper grandparents. In 2014 Means’ grandfather George passed away, leaving an entire ranch house full of vintage clothes, furniture, dishes, and cobwebs for Means’ mother to clean out. Knowing her daughter’s love of vintage clothes Sherri Means saved Sally and George’s hip threads and gifted them to Means and Timmons on Thanksgiving in 2014. This was also the time Means and Timmons began recording Tip my heart, They arrived at the initial sessions at Thunderground Sound Studio wearing Sally & George’s clothes.”
The doors open at 4:30 PM Sunday, June 16, and the music starts at 5:15. There will be food and drinks available for purchase. Tickets are $25 each. Click here to buy them.
This is a fundraiser for the Mt. Sinai Endowment Fund. The Endowment Fund started with the sponsorship of the Women of the Bible series of stained glass windows in the Social Hall. The Fund has been actively fundraising ever since. The Fund’s goal is to reach a million dollars. Money raised is carefully invested and reviewed monthly by the Endowment Board. When the Fund reaches $250,000, a portion of the interest will be given to the Synagogue for help in expenses. The principal is not touched, and will not be touched. Only the interest will be used by the Synagogue.
The Endowment is one of two fundraising organizations supporting Mt. Sinai. The other is the Mt. Sinai Trust. This weekend’s concert is organized and being put on by the Endowment.
Tickets are $25, and you can buy them here.
Here’s our Yiddish Phrase of the Week:
Ich vil a tsimer.
I want a room.
Mt. Sinai Board of Directors
Acharei Mot Kedoshim Emor – The titles of the Torah portions we are currently reading, when put together in this fashion, mean “After death one should tell things that are unique and sacred” about a person who has died. These are the only words I remember from the Rabbi’s eulogy for my Zaydie, whose Yahrzeit was on Mother’s Day this year. I am surprised I remembered that much, as this was over 40 years ago – but some things do stick in the memory.
These past few weeks have been a time for remembering the masses who have died, and for mourning those who have newly been killed. May what we and the world says about them remain in the realm of the sacred.
On a more pragmatic note, a while ago there was a leak in the boiler unit that supplies heat for the Small Sanctuary, the bathrooms, the main office and my office. The part needed to fix that leak may soon be available – what it has meant for us is that services have been held in the social hall for the past two weekends.It should warm up before the Festival, so we can be back in the Small Sanctuary and the social hall can be prepped properly for the Yiddish Food Festival.
Please keep the world as a whole in your thoughts and prayers – there is a lot going on, and some of it is downright scary and dangerous.
