That’s What Friends Are For

I recently called a temple partner just to say hello as part of my annual call endeavor. My plan is to call and connect with every temple partner a few times a year. This call began like many others: confirming contact information, talking about partnership and your connection to Temple Beth El, and anything else leadership should know. While chatting, this person said that s/he was having health issues and recently had surgery. Luckily, this person was on the mend and feeling better.  I said “I wished we had known because someone could have called to see how you were doing, if you needed anything or if you needed the Caring Committee or Clergy to reach out.”  I chatted about my role as Partnership Liaison and that I am here to liaise for our temple partners.

Please don’t hesitate to call me anytime at (631) 421-5835, Ext. 206 or email me ( and let me know how we, as a temple community, can be there to support you!  While I do spend time following up on temple pledges and planning events, my role at TBE extends far beyond that. I want to get to know you better and what we can do for you.  If you are facing illness, hardship and anything else we are here to lend strength and support.  After all, isn’t that what friends and family do for each other?   We are in this together, so let us be there for you!
