Give Temple Israel a second chance!

 


Dear Editor:

I was so disappointed to read the letter to the editor in the May 9th edition that was so pointedly critical of Temple Israel. I felt compelled to share my experience, which has been completely opposite to hers.

While I am happy to know that she had good experiences at the other synagogues, I actually had to read the letter twice to make sure she was talking about Temple Israel in Winter Springs! I have found this congregation to be very warm, friendly, and extremely welcoming. I can only wonder what “function” she attended that she was not warmly welcomed. From the minute I first walked into Temple Israel, I was greeted by people introducing themselves and inviting me to join them—and my family has had the same experience.

I would like to apologize to Mr. and Mrs. Chase on behalf of our synagogue and ask her for a second chance. I think she would be pleased with her reception and enjoy her time at Temple Israel.
