1. WELCOME TO 2021-2022
Welcome back! I hope all had a wonderful summer and that you and your families were not directly affected by our covid friend. We are going to be starting up our fall program and first on the MoTAS agenda is Sukkot. Again as we have done many times, we will be erecting the community Sukkah. So……. (see item 2)
We need a count of how many will be participating so please [email email@example.com] and give us your HECK YES! – If you can’t make it, we’ll understand.
Remember, like it says [in item 2] FREE bagels, cream cheese and coffee for all! Before the work begins, at 9am Rabbi Becky will be installing our new board. We will have a shortened meeting recapping our finances and reviewing our calendar for the upcoming year. This past year had been challenging to say the least and I am hopeful that as we move forward we will be able to resume our onsite gatherings enjoying being together in the same place. If we can’t we will continue to have our meetings via ZOOM. [We will not be ZOOMing this meeting.]
I am also looking for input from our members for topical ideas on guest speakers and areas of interest. If any of you would like to give a talk about your hobby or work, let me know. I will gladly work with you to create a presentation.
I hope many of you can make it and I am looking forward to seeing you there.
2. SUKKAH BUILDING – SAVE THE DATE – SUN SEP 19
JEWISH MEN WITH TOOLS (MoTAS) are tentatively scheduled to build our temple Sukkah on Sunday September 19. We will have a brief business meeting at 9am, and the construction will commence at 10 am. All able bodied men [and women] are invited to come help build our community Sukkah and join in the fun and camaraderie. Bring your gloves, Allen wrenches, your mask. your appetite and your smiles. There will be free bagels, cream cheese and coffee for all. This easy job can be completed in about an hour.
Please let Larry (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if YOU can shop for chicken wire and phone ties. AND, as Valley Crest is not offering palm fronds, please let us know if you know where we can get them. If YOU have a truck available to pick up the palm fronds, we would appreciate that also. We will have bagels and drinks. Please let us know if you can be there to help out!
3. MEET OUR OFFICERS: SCOTT GORE
Scott Gore, one of our new VPs, writes: Scott Gore – Born in Indiana, moved a lot as a young child, grew up mostly in Orlando, Florida. I went to college at MIT in Massachusetts where I met my wife, Andrea Rosenthal. We have two grown sons; one is a property accountant in San Diego, the other is a medical supply distribution supervisor near Boston. I spent most of my career working on electronic parts and materials for the defense industry in Massachusetts, until 2017 when I joined JPL to work on electronic parts for space. That’s what brought me to California and TAS.
