Partnership Committee News

We know that 2020 has been a difficult year for many with Covid-19 so prevalent.  The Partnership Committee wanted to come up with a way to let you know that we, at Temple Beth El, are thinking of you.  In late October, the Partnership Committee and a group of volunteers set out to deliver a “Shabbat Shalom” goodie bag containing a delicious challah and Shabbat candles to more than 325 partners in our temple community.  It brought smiles to many faces and added to the joy of welcoming in Shabbat.  Lisa and I appreciate all the time, effort and planning that went into making this project a success!

Thank you to:   Patti Kresner, Sue and Rob Seiler, Beverly and Peter Wayne, Joy Moss, Myra Feeney, Elisa McDonagh, Karen Fazekas, Marcia Schwalb, Cora Brettler, Randee Epstein, Janet Widawsky, Sue Goldman, Debi Fallenberg, Rob Fishman and Steve Jarmon.

Special thanks also go out to Lisa Bennett and Irma Talbot for their quick responses when we needed something and the help they so generously offered.  We couldn’t have done this without you!

We’re always looking for helping hands.  Please let us know if you would be interested in working on future Partnership projects.   Lisa Fishman can be reached at  and Debbie Jarmon at  Stay safe and healthy!
