Katz JCC Adult Education: Life Long Learning Institute

Dear Congregation Temple Sinai,

We have been members of this congregation for 25 years and consider Temple Sinai our home. We can’t overestimate the important role that this shul has played in helping us to reclaim our Judaism. We are especially grateful to Rabbi Fineblum, who was instrumental in guiding us on every step of our journey. Here our children attended Hebrew school, confirmation classes, summer camps, and USY trips to Israel and around the country. We took advantage of various adult education courses. We volunteered and have been members of the board and the ritual committee for many years.

Our kids are grown up; they’ve graduated school and left New Jersey. And now, after all these years, we too have decided to move to Atlanta, where our daughter has made a new home with her husband. This decision put us in a reflective mood. Reminiscing, we realized that we spent our first 30 years in Moscow and our next 30 in New Jersey–call it a 30-year itch–and now we are ready to turn to the next page.

Over the years, many of you have shared with us your memories of the many marches and demonstrations you attended in support of Soviet Jewry throughout the 1970s and 80s. Well, it worked! Our family journey is just one example of your successful efforts on our behalf, and for this we will remain forever grateful!

We look forward to our new life in Atlanta. Alex will continue to work remotely for several more years, and then plan to retire. Temple Sinai and the Jewish community in New Jersey have a very special place in our hearts. We plan to stay in touch and visit again someday soon. Until then, Shalom, Y’all! The Elkinds
