Greetings to all my fellow Shomrim Brothers and Sisters! First, I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve as your President during this term. I look forward to continuing to work with Spencer, Gary, Jacob, and Ben; and I want to welcome our newest member, Marshal Josh Zucker. I also want to thank our outgoing President, Bro. Michael Podber. His leadership and commitment to the Shomrim Society should serve as an example.
I would also like to congratulate our spiritual advisor and Department Chief Chaplain, Rabbi Kass, again, on his recently celebrated fiftieth anniversary with the New York City Police Department. This society owes so much of its continued success and more to Rabbi Kass and to his wife, Miryom. Again, mazel tov, Rabbi!
Most of all, I look forward to working with you, the membership. If you haven’t been to a meeting or an event in a while, please think about coming back. If you have never been to a meeting or an event, please think about making this the year to get active in the Society. With Pesach on the horizon, we will be holding our annual Passover distribution on April 2nd. It’s one of the greatest mitzvahs we do as a group during the year and I encourage all to participate, you’ll be glad you did.
Again, thank you. I look forward to working with you.
