As many residents of our community will begin celebrating Chanukah next week, I reflect on how fortunate I am to be part of a community where we can share so many traditions and cultures with one another. It is part of what makes the holiday season so special. Please join me in wishing our friends, family, and neighbors who will be observing the holiday this year a Happy Chanukah.
With Veterans Day coming up next week, I wanted to take a moment to recognize the enormous sacrifice our veterans and current military personnel have made to protect our country's freedom and to simply, but sincerely say, "Thank You."
I would like to begin this week's newsletter by saying, "L'Shanah Tovah" to everyone celebrating the New Year beginning this Sunday evening. May your new year be sweet and may you be inscribed in the Book of Life for a healthy and happy year.
