Todah Rabah means Thank you!

This page is meant to recognize the efforts of Temple and community members. We want to thank them and inform others about what these people have done to help and support the Temple.


But nothing will appear here unless you send it to us.


You can click on the button below and send us a note with their names and a brief description of what they've done that goes beyond the call of duty. We will post it here without identifying you.  Your thank you note will remain on this page for about a month.


So go ahead and                                       It's a mitzvah!

Our new President, Debe Bloom, needs to be recognized for stepping up and taking on the heavy responsibilities of this very important office. She is very qualified, very organized, very responsible, and has assembled an outstanding Board of Directors. Please give her your support, and please pick up the phone, call her, and tell her you are there for her if she needs your assistance.

A loving Todah Rabah to Sheila Cohn who never stops caring about our temple and our temple members. Every other Friday she leads us in prayer, she arranges for after services community dinners for those who wish to join, she leads the morning walks; she is in charge of the Helping Hands project….whatever needs to be done, Sheila is always there to get it done---and she has such a wide knowledge of the history of the temple and how things work. Such a pleasure knowing Sheila and having her as an intrical part of our community. Todah Rabah, Sheila!!

He does so much, it's really hard to know everything that is accomplished by Alan Greenberg, the President of our JCO congregation. He takes care of the facilities (maintenance); he sends out the mailings we receive in the US mail; he makes sure that fundraising is in place; he leads us in our search to end anti-semitism; he creates relationships with the Federation and other clergy outside of our Rabbi; he leads our monthly Board of Directors meetings….and I’m certain there’s so much more. A big huge Todah Rabah to Alan for all that he does to keep our congregation running smoothly, especially during this time of the pandemic.

A big Todah Rabah to the Torah study group that meets each Saturday at 9:45 for some schmoozing and then at 10 for some fun, thought-proking, exciting, questioning and learning of our Torah and what our forefathers have gifted us. What a great thing Rick Bloom brought to us....what amazing depth Shlomo Raz enlightens us with...and everyone else who sits around the table (or our zoom screen) that participates in thought. And there's room for more who want to come and be a part of community led learning....

And a big kiss and thank you to Jackie Sherman and Sheila Cohn for spearheading the after Shabbat dinner at JCO. Twenty people attended and had a great time munching food from Papa Lennons and sipping some very expensive wine from Vons. We hope more of you will join us when we do it again this month.
