A Word from Rabbi Schulman - 2/20/15
For many months, information about Temple Beth Torah’s trip to Israel has been available to members of our congregation. A dedicated website devoted to our TBT trip, designed by ARZAWorld, offers a detailed picture of the itinerary, accommodations, and costs for the journey. As with any congregational trip to Israel, the basic cost of the trip is factored on a specific number of participants. In our case, the pricing for the June 16-29 trip is based upon 15 travelers. At this time, unfortunately, we have not reached that critical number of registrants. We are reaching a point where we need to, in the words of my father, “fish or cut bait.” Over the months, I have had conversations with congregants who have expressed interest in the Israel trip and yet have not said definitively whether they are going. As a way of determining where we stand, let’s use Friday, February 27 as a deadline. If you – or anyone you know – has a strong interest in joining the TBT Israel trip this coming June, please email me or call me by next Friday. If I don’t hear from you, even though we have spoken about the trip in the past, I will presume that you are not available to travel to Israel this spring. For anyone interested, information about the Temple Beth Torah trip to Israel is at http://www.arzaworld.com/Flipbook/Temple_beth_torah_fremont/
