Thank you for your care!

Each year our sanctuary is transformed to mark the High Holy Days, and this is made possible through the contributions and efforts of members of our community. Lindy and Stan Shortt arrange to have the parokhet changed and the Torah and shulḥan covers cleaned. Barbara Humphreys polishes all the silver. The beautiful flowers came to us from Barbara and Tim Humphreys, Janna Ginsberg-Bleviss and Morris Bleviss, and Leah and Uri Levi.

Many thanks to you all. This continuing care is deeply appreciated each year and this year particularly as it was a joy to see that we can continue to do the things that are so meaningful to us.

Thanks from Joel and Marlene Gordon

Dearest Members of Congregation Emanu-El

Again we want to express our heartfelt thanks to you and the members of the congregation that so graciously welcomed us to the concluding service and break-fast this fall for Yom Kippur.

Our evening at Emanu-El will always be remembered with a special meaning both for the beauty and the service and the hospitality. It turned out to be a highlight of a visit to Victoria which we’ve been relating to our friends. We hope that your congregation prospers.


Marlene and Joel S. Gordon
