Dear Members and Members-to-Be,
As we approach the Yamim Nora’im, or the Days of Awe, we have our work cut out for us. The JNET Board of Directors will approach the High Holy Days examining how we have contributed to our member’s sense of community, prosperity, and opportunities for success. We will commit to working hard in the coming year to improve and enhance the JNET experience for all our members and provide more leadership opportunities for members to engage in that will afford more visibility and chances for personal and professional success.
Our tradition teaches that during the High Holy Days, God decides who will live and who will die during the coming year. As a result, during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (and in the days leading up to them) we embark upon the serious task of examining our lives and repenting for any wrongs we have committed during the previous year. We are encouraged to make amends with anyone we have wronged and to make plans for improving during the coming year. In this way, Rosh Hashanah is all about making peace in the community and striving to be a better person.
On behalf of the JNET Board of Directors, I would like to acknowledge all our members for contributing to the growth and success JNET has enjoyed this year. We also would like to apologize if our collective actions or individual interactions have made anyone feel slighted, not heard, or offended. Please accept our praise and please accept our apologies.
Have a happy and healthy New Year, and may we all be inscribed in the Book of Life!
