Needham 300 and Temple Beth Shalom 55

The Town of Needham is celebrating it's 300th birthday in 2011. Last Saturday night my wife Julie and I had the pleasure of attending Needham 300 Night at the Pops. Symphony Hall was full with 2500 Needhamites (and only Needhamites!) who had journeyed into Boston. As I sat in the balcony and looked at the many animated faces before the concert started, I noted the many Temple Beth Shalom members who were present.

Needham has been an exceptionally good home for Temple Beth Shalom for our 55 years in the town. We are blessed to have it as our congregational home. It is a good community of citizens who are actively involved in town government and other town activities. So too has our community been good for the Town of Needham. Our members populate the Board of Selectmen, Town Meeting and many, many community organizations.

As Needham celebrates its birthday this year, let's pause and reflect with gratitude on this long-standing and wonderful relationship that we share with our broader community.
