We All Have Our Vices
File this one under, we all have our vices, and that includes me, but in this instance, I am the vice. Vice-President, that is. Of Congregation Adas Emuno.
I was asked if I would serve, and agreed, and so, on June 16, at our annual Congregational meeting, I was elected Vice-President, for a two-year term. As you may recall, I have been a member of the Board of Trustees of Adas Emuno for several years now. Our By-Laws are a bit different from what I'm used to, as the Officers are elected for two-year terms, whereas Trustees are elected for 3-year terms, so officers are distinct from Trustees.
Congregation Adas Emuno is a small Reform Jewish Temple in Leonia, New Jersey. You may have caught my previous post about starting up a congregational blog: Adas Emuno Now Blogging. The blog's address is http://adasemuno.blogspot.com, and you can see the post about my new post (and the rest of the changing of the guard regarding the Officers and Board of Trustees) here: New Leadership and Trustees for Adas Emuno.
The nice thing about this vice thing is that there are no specific duties--that's an old story when it comes to vice-presidencies. Of course, there's no senate (or sanhedrin) for me to preside over, but I expect that my cup will be overrun before long. Until then, I will not weep over becoming the veep.
