As always I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to once again make the observance of the High Holidays here at the Temple so special.  It takes a tremendous amount of work to ensure that everything goes smoothly, and once again our professional staff and all of our volunteers went above and beyond. As always I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to once again make the observance of the High Holidays here at the Temple so special.  It takes a tremendous amount of work to ensure that everything goes smoothly, and once again our professional staff and all of our volunteers went above and beyond.

One of the things that you may have noticed is that it was slightly brighter in the sanctuary this year. We have heard numerous comments that at times it feels too dark in the sanctuary, and this is one of the many projects that we are working on this year. All we have done at this time is in the light fixtures along the sides of the sanctuary. We replaced our incandescent light bulbs with brighter LED light bulbs. This did provide significant more light in our side sections, but that light does not reach our center section. 

We will be meeting with lighting engineers to see what other solutions might be available to us to improve the lighting in the sanctuary. New LED technology will give us a lot of options and save the Temple some money in the long run as LED lights use a fraction of the energy incandescent light bulbs do. 

We want to make sure that what we do enhances the beauty of our sanctuary and in no way distracts from its beauty. That’s why I was so happy to see the results of the painting Jake and Charles did in the sanctuary. I feel most people didn’t even notice that there are no more loose tiles and chipped paint in the sanctuary. That’s what a good improvement should do. It should improve and enhance the beauty of a space in a way that’s unobtrusive. We have a beautiful sanctuary and the improvements we do should always maintain that beauty for the generations to come.
