Farewell Tribute for Art & Patty Werschulz

Patty and Art Werschulz are making Aliyah –don’t let them leave for Israel without bidding them a fond farewell.

For the past 35 years, in more ways than we can count, Patty and Art have been integral to the beating heart of the TBEMC community. They have truly been a gift, and their sensibilities inform every aspect of the community we are today.

They have contributed according to their individual strengths and interests to Ritual Leadership (leining, davening, gabbai), Temple Governance (President, innumerable committees including Ritual and High Holiday, Trustee), financial support, and opening their home to many guests.

They embody the meaning of volunteering and genuinely love our Shul. They leave behind large shoes to try to fill.

Our intention was to hold a dinner to pay tribute to Art and Patty, but given the Corona Virus Pandemic, that is no longer a viable option. Therefore, we will be focusing on presenting them with a commemorative ad journal as our way to thank Patty and Art for their many meaningful contributions to our community. Ads will be accepted until June 1st.

The Tribute will be a live event via Zoom on Sunday, June 14th at 11:30 am and we invite everyone to attend. If you are interested in saying a few words or sharing a story about Art & Patty please let us know so that we can put you on the speaking schedule.
