Rabbi Efrem Goldberg's Next Ten Years - "The Best is yet to come"

The following letter was mailed to the members of Boca Raton Synagogue from Rabbi Efrem Goldberg.
I am truly honored, humbled and deeply appreciative to have received our community's vote of confidence in renewing my contract for ten years.  Not a day goes by that Yocheved and I don't feel beyond blessed for the magnificent opportunity Hashem has bestowed upon us to be a part of this incredible community. 

We are very proud of what we have accomplished together with the community and our colleagues at BRS throughout our time in Boca and in particular in the last 6 years as Rabbi.  However, my friends let me tell you, the best is yet to come.  There is so much more that we can do, accomplish and achieve in partnership in the decade ahead.

Please join me at the conclusion of the 9am minyan tomorrow, as I begin what I hope will emerge as a community conversation about a vision for the next ten years.

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Efrem Goldberg
This morning I had the pleasure of hearing Rabbi Goldberg deliver this speech. He began by outlining all of the accomplishments that have taken place over the past five years. It's hard not to be amazed by all of the programs and activities that have taken place in the short time that he has served as the Senior Rabbi. Then he listed the priorities that he would like to focus on over then next ten years. Number one on the list was the expansion of the outreach program. With the help of the membership, Boca Raton Synagogue will become a model for a successful synagogue based outreach program. Other goals include increased learning opportunities and the completion of the shul's campus.
Mazel Tov Rabbi Goldberg!!!
