Honorable Menschen (Summer 2019-Winter 2020)

Posted on January 15, 2020

Summer to Fall 2019

Our mini-golf outing was a big success thanks to the tireless efforts of three delightful women: Dana Shapiro, Jodi Smith, and Andrea Dean. Leading up to the event, a small army of volunteers canvassed area businesses for donations to create a wonderful array of gift baskets. The event drew individuals and families to an afternoon of fun in the sun, or on the course, or in the golf simulator.  And the best part is that Dana, Jodi and Andrea became such good friends in the process. They were true leaders – modeling careful planning, hard work, and friend-making. Kudos to them and their team of volunteers for putting together a great event and for enjoying themselves in the process

 Fall to Winter 2019/2020

Ryan Maizel and Jason Shapiro earned the designation of Honorable Menschen thanks to their efforts to upgrade the temple’s WiFi. Recently, the several aging WiFi networks were replaced with a single network that covers the entire building and runs on commercial grade equipment with significant capacity. Now, staff and guests can access the WiFi anywhere in the building, and move to any other location in the building, without having to reconnect. Staff members now have the added benefit of access to a printer network, so mobile printing or printing from laptops is streamlined. The WiFi password is prominently posted in the temple lobby. Thanks, Ryan and Jason, for improving our efficiency.
