Weekly Message from the Board President

 

Company’s coming!  On Sunday, we expect hundreds of our closest friends and neighbors to come to the Synagogue for the Yiddish Food Festival.  They’ll come for the food, but also for our Jewish culture and traditions.

A Klezmer band from Denver, the Klez Dispensers, will perform on stage in the social hall.  There will be tours of the Synagogue, taking visitors to our two sanctuaries and around the shul.  The Rabbi will host an “Ask the Rabbi” program and answer questions about Judaism, Mt. Sinai, and whatever our guests are curious about.  We’ll clear a space in the Social Hall for dancing and encourage our visitors to get up and join us.

It will be a lot of fun, and if you’ve never seen our Synagogue packed with people, you definitely need to come.  We look our best during the Yiddish Food Festival.

And… we need you!  We need every volunteer we can find to help us make sure our guests have a great time.  Phyllis Bloomberg is organizing our volunteers.  If you haven’t had a chance to talk with her, please come anyway.  We’ll put you to work helping our visitors.’

The Festival runs from 11 AM to 3 PM on Sunday (June 23).  We’ll be in the Synagogue early that day, getting things ready.  And we’ll have to stay a couple of hours after the festival to clean up.

This week is our final cooking push, with cooking going on every day.  But we have to share the story of one of our volunteers – Lila Gallensky.  Lila is in her 90’s, at an age we all hope to get to.  She was hard at work last week, making tons of strudel for the Yiddish Food Festival.  Her recipe is amazing, and her strudel is always a hit at the festival.

Advertising for the Festival is up and running.  We have signs along Dell Range Blvd, Pershing Blvd, North Yellowstone, and 19th Street (at Holliday Park).  There are digital billboards up on Dell Range Blvd., North Yellowstone, Lincolnway, and Pershing Blvd.  We have ads running in Traders and on Facebook.  So we’re doing what we can to get the word out.

This is a big deal for us and for the community.  We’re working hard to make it a success, but the real impact will be with your help to make sure our guests feel welcome and have a good time.

Here’s our Yiddish Phrase of the Week:

Shlof gikher, men darf di kishn.        
Sleep faster, we need the pillows.   

Shalom,

Dave Lerner
President
Mt. Sinai Board of Directors
