We have reached another milestone, a true Shehechayanu moment. On Tuesday, October 28, 2010 we became the proud owners of the property on Trowbridge Road where we will build our future home.
There is no way to adequately thank Mark Hackner for finding and securing this property for us, to Steve Wertheim for working on the very favorable financial arrangements and to Andy Kauss for the long months and countless hours of attention to all the legal issues that were associated with this purchase. They were joined by other dedicated members who have all been instrumental in bringing us to this point. We are indeed blessed with dedicated and talented leaders who have given tirelessly to make this dream of owning our own home a reality.
Thank you to the Abby Friedman and Harry Heiman and Melinda and Steve Wertheim for the wonderful leadership as we quietly launched our Capital Campaign over the summer. Thank you to Lynn Epstein and Ken Stein and Stephanie and Jeff Kupor who have assembled a terrific team as they lead the way for our General Campaign. Thank you to everyone for the extraordinary work you all have done and are continuing to do to make Congregation Or Hadash a truly inspiring, learning and caring community.
This is truly our most exciting chapter and we want everyone to be a part of this moment in the history of our congregation.
