We are coming up on the New Year (the Jewish New Year that is), and I have finally decided to make a change. I have been struggling for a couple years now with some negative feelings about my synagogue and Rabbi due to issues my son and his son had when they attended day school together and things I witnessed while serving on the board of the synagogue that made me unhappy. My unease has caused me to stop attending services and financial constraints have kept me from putting my boys in Hebrew school. Well, no longer! I have finally decided to sever ties with my current synagogue and seek out another. It isn't easy since there are very few Jewish congregations around here. I have finally decided to try one a couple towns over (only about 15-20mins away). I really hope that it will be a good fit since there aren't any other real options. I was very happy at my old shul for so long that it has been hard to let go, but I hope this new year will be a good one for us with a new Rabbi and congregation. L'shanah Tovah!
