After many years serving our congregation, our constitution has become outdated and changes needed to be made to address current day requirements. Over the past year, our Ad Hoc Constitution Review Committee has conducted a series of meetings to better understand the present day needs of the synagogue and what changes were required to follow best practices in modern-day corporate governance.
The committee has developed a draft constitution which has been endorsed and approved by our Board of Governors and its Executive. And it’s important that our members have their own say.
Please note the following two Constitution-related meetings that have been scheduled for our members:
- On Sunday, October 20th at 10:30 am, a Constitution Information Meeting has been scheduled in Greenspoon Hall where members of the committee will be available to answer any questions you have or explain why various parts of the Constitution were written the way they were.
- On Sunday, November 3rd at 11:00 am, we urge you to attend a Special General Meeting of the membership in Granovsky Hall so that you may cast your vote. A quorum is required so we are counting on your attendance and backing to see that our proposed constitution passes which can only help our shul as we move forward.

Following the Constitution vote on November 3rd, there will be a special ribbon cutting ceremony at 1:00 p.m. to dedicate the Archival Display in our Library to Rabbi Erwin and Laura ז״ל Schild for their untiring dedication to the history of Adath Israel.
A special thanks to all of those on the committee who worked so hard. We look forward to seeing our members on October 20th and November 3rd. If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out to me or the office.
