I am writing to inform you of exciting news regarding our Shul and to invite you to participate in one of our upcoming Town Hall Meetings and a Special Meeting of the Members.
Young Israel of Greater Cleveland has received a proposal to enter into a long term lease with Congregation Zichron Chaim for the use of the Social Hall. I believe this is a unique opportunity for the Shul and an opportunity to transform our congregation.
At its meeting on Tuesday February 13, the General Board of the Young Israel considered the proposal and authorized the Executive Board to negotiate a lease based on the proposal. This authorization is subject to approval by the membership.
In order to properly address the questions and concerns of the members, I have scheduled Town Hall meetings for us to come together. We will review the proposal and discuss the future of our Shul. We will also have a Special Meeting of general membership to formally consider and vote on the proposal. A separate notice of the Special Meeting will be mailed this week.
Please note the following dates:

I hope you will participate and attend one of the Town Hall meetings and the Special Meeting of the membership. If it imperative that all of our members participate in this process.
I am looking forward to working with all of you during this process.
