Message from the President
Fall is finally here! And the Arbor Day Event was a great way of welcoming this season!! We had raving reviews about this event and have been discussing about making it a tradition every year. This event serves 2 main purposes: 1) getting our community together and 2) beautifying our Darb-e-Mehr. Thanks for all our community members who volunteered and participated in this event to make it so successful. Way to own our future! Also don’t miss the rose garden at the rear entrance the next time you visit us. This was an outcome of an Interfaith Event that was, for the first time, hosted at our center. I was fortunate enough to participate and learn a lot about other faiths and their philosophy on ‘justice’. They all had very interesting point of views. I encourage more community members, especially the younger generation, to participate in such events to learn from others as well as educate others about our religion and our beliefs.
This month of October seems to be packed with events and activities that provide a good mix of education, sports, networking and partying. If you missed the Interfaith event, there is another 2-day SSZ event that focuses on religious education. Mark your calendars and make it a point to attend the SSZ event and most of the other events this month. I look forward to seeing you all at these events.
Lastly, I would sincerely like to thank every individual who has pledged or donated towards our Ava project. I am truly impressed with the ‘give back’ from our community members towards this project. Slowly, but steadily, we are marching towards our goal of paying off the loan for this project as soon as possible. I look forward to seeing every member of our community donate to this cause and help us reach our destination much sooner!
Feel free to reach out to me via email with questions/concerns/suggestions.
Take care and God Bless you all!

May we all be united in strength and righteousness
