Amabasssadors’ Report

Week of February 24, 2020

We'd like to thank the many congregants who participated in voting on the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) regarding merging Or Chadash and Temple Emanu-El.  Now that the MOU is approved, we're taking the next steps, as agreed.  We've begun the application process for grant funding from IMPACT Arizona to help with costs of merging, such as attorney fees and a consultant with expertise in the merger process.  The directors of both religious schools are presenting plans for combining religious schools for fall 2020 at February board meetings. We're in conversation about celebrating High Holy Days together in September and we'll be planning social events to get better acquainted over the next few months. We'll form new committees as soon as possible once we have hired our consultant.  Please contact either Elaine Jones at president@octucson.org or Mona Gibson at monagibson@earthlink.net if you’d consider serving on one of the new committees yet to be formed - let us know your area of interest and we’ll find a place for you.  Both Elaine and Mona will be available before their Friday night services this week and welcome your thoughts and conversation.  Stay tuned!
