Greetings to All,
Well it is time to welcome the month of June and all that it is
expected to bring i.e., warmer weather, more socialization, and
However, at this time, it is with much sadness that I bring to your
attention the death of Jean Fernandes, long-time custodian and
more importantly ambassador for TTI. When I first became
President, it was Jean who provided me with so much guidance
and reassurance which I needed so badly. Jean also was a
wonderful greeter and went out of her way to make those
entering the Temple welcome, answer any questions, and
provide information. Every event that was planned was overseen
by Jean down to its last detail. Even after retirement, she often
came by TTI to visit, talk, have some laughs and bring me my
special gumballs that she bought in New Hampshire.... She was a
great support, employee, and a friend. Our condolences to her
daughters Cindy and Katie and her entire beautiful family. Rest in
Peace Jean. May your memory be for a Blessing.
Before we talk about a few plans for June, we want to first extend
our Mazal Tov to Joshua and Beth Schreiber upon their recent
marriage. Our wishes for all life’s best. We also want to thank
Joshua, our Rabbinic Intern for the past year, for all his input,
concern, guidance, and talent. Our sincerest wishes for success
in any and all of his future endeavors and know that TTI will
always be glad to see you whenever you can visit.
A Few things planned for June are:
Saturday, June 4, following
Shabbat Service, a Kiddush recognizing and thanking Joshua
Schreiber for his service to Temple Tifereth Israel. Join us and
come by to wish Josh good luck.
On Sunday, June 12, 10:30 a.m. there is a Sisterhood meeting.
On June 29, a fundraiser is being planned by the Sisterhood at the
LaSiesta Restaurant in Winthrop. Check for details and help
support this worthwhile event.
President, Temple Tifereth Israel
