FSJD Board Meeting
August 3, 2022
Wendy Bachman’s house

Board Members Present: Joy Antar, Glenna Ashton, Wendy Bachman, Jerry Cohen, Michael Goldberg, Lance Weinrib

Meeting called at 11:00 AM

Minutes – August 3, 2022, revised minutes accepted as corrected via e-mail.

President report: It has been only five months since Martin Florsheim left! The website continues to be updated. Secretary position needs to be filled – no qualified candidate yet, need to search and if necessary, plan for November meeting. Susan Frajman’s father’s Holocaust interview was not recommended by Simon Carmel. There are existing videos that are captioned. The Caring committee chaired by Su Robbins needs to keep records and report general statistics (with identity confidentially) on their efforts, needs to promote awareness, and perhaps make a video for the web site. They have $100. funding. Carol Trachtenberg has old records of memberships and minutes, perhaps transfer them. JDC Summit in Baltimore MD Oct 6-7 but no interest in attendance from Board. Fall Shabbat virtual service hosting – again no Board interest. Board members are encouraged to attend FSJD events regularly.

Vice- President report: No report but will discuss the policy drafts later

Secretary report: No report

Treasurer report: Carol Trachtenberg will be a back up when needed. There 112 members.
