Dear Members & Friends,
As the High Holy Days begin, I want to extend my warmest wishes to the entire Kahal Joseph family.
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are wonderful opportunities for reflection. They represent a chance to take stock of our lives and look ahead to the coming year with a clear vision and renewed purpose.
Our tradition teaches us that one of the most important duties we have during this period is the act of reconciliation. We're called to seek each other out and make amends for those moments when we may not have lived up to our values as well as we should.
When society too often focuses on what divides us instead of what unites us, I hope that each of us can recognize ourselves in one another, and renew the unbreakable bond we share with our families and friends.
It has been a wonderful year for Kahal Joseph in large part due to the love and support of our members, our Board of Directors, our staff, and the excellence of our clergy, Rabbi Hagay Batzri, Hazan Sassoon Ezra, and Hazan Saeed Jalali. We are also honored to have Rabbi Daniel Bouskila praying with us both days of Rosh Hashanah. We are so blessed.
May the New Year bring peace to our world, and may we see a strong and peaceful State of Israel. In that spirit, Letizia and I wish you and your families a sweet year full of good health, happiness and contentment.
