Temple Solel names leaders
FORT MILL Temple Solel, the Reform Jewish congregation, held its third annual meeting and picnic at the Commodore Yacht Club on Lake Wylie. In addition to the social gathering, the group elected new officers, approved its budget and named standing committee chair.
Officers for the coming year are president James Fox; vice president Edie Yakutis; secretary Lori Lantos; treasurer Leo Yakutis.
Committee chairmen are ritual, Russ Cobe; membership, Wendy and Roy Weinberger; education, Micki Fox; caring, Renee Feitelberg; social action, Carol Hahn; Israel, Shelly Pawly; events, Dan Lantos.
“We are very fortunate to have an open, welcoming congregation that is slowly growing in a manageable way that enables us to maintain a family atmosphere,” Fox said. “We have just completed our second Bat Mitzvah, and have had our first baby naming. We have two excellent lay-leaders, and we continue to have outstanding attendance at Shabbat services.”
Temple Solel holds Shabbat services at 7 p.m. the second and fourth Fridays of the month at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church. For information, call 803-548-5415.
