DAY 6 — Reflection on the week, looking forward to the future

Dear Hevreh,

(NOTE: This email is a little longer) 

Wow, I can’t believe my first official week is almost over.  I’ve enjoyed every minute of it, even the little mundane stuff I need to do to put my office together.  However, my favorite moments of the week have been meeting and talking with people about their Jewish journeys.  I’ve been trying to do a lot of that, but I need to do more.  As I mentioned, it is my goal to meet with every willing member of the community to get to know you better, and I’d like to apologize in advance to all of those who I haven’t called yet and who I won’t call for awhile as I make my way through contacting each member of the community.  

Everyone’s voice is important and I want to hear yours.  As such, I’d like to give you the option of scheduling a meeting with me if you are so inclined before I reach out to you.  I am attaching a list of times I am free to meet these next 2 weeks:  

Next week

Monday 7/9 12:30-1:30

Monday 7/9 3:30-4:30

Wednesday 7/11 11:30-12:30

In 2 weeks

Monday (7/16) 10:30-11:30

Monday (7/16) 3:30-4:30

Tuesday (7/17) 11:30-12:30

Wednesday (7/18) 10:30-11:30

Wednesday (7/18) 3:30-4:30

Thursday (7/19) 11:30-12:30

Thursday (7/19) 4:30-5:30

I will not use all of these times to meet, but they are the times I am currently available.    I will take times to meet on a first come first serve basis, and if a certain time is filled I will try to reschedule with you right away.

Also, for those who are tech savvy and have a Google account, you can sign up for a time using the appointment feature on Google Calendar.  Simply click on this following website, and sign up for an open slot:

I have really enjoyed learning about our community and look forward to learning much more in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead.  Along these lines, take a look at some pictures Elliot and I took from retrieving books from Sarah Omanson’s z”l apartment yesterday.  They are attached to this email.  Also, for those who are interested, I took a video looking at an interesting picture she had linking Jewish tradition and zionism together.  You can find the video by clicking on this link:

Enjoy the pictures and video and we’ll talk soon.

Kol tuv (all the best),

Rabbi Ari Saks
