It’s been just over one year since we were elected to serve as your new board of directors. We are grateful for your ongoing support as we work to strengthen the fabric of our community, fix areas in need improvement, and work to bring a fresh and innovative approach to how we operate.
At our recent AGM, Sunday, June 9, we had a chance to provide the community with an update on our efforts, including pivotal ongoing investments in the House Next Door and rebuilding our infrastructure through the Ava Project. We are grateful to each of you for the fundraising contributions so many families and individuals have made to strengthen our community infrastructure.
There are decisions we need to make as a community that are still outstanding, such as the continuation of our daily priestly services. Such decisions can only be made collectively by community members and Mobeds voicing their opinions and concerns in a constructive and collaborative setting. We will continue to facilitate the discussion and work toward a solution that is in the best interests of our community and our highly respected and beloved Mobeds.
We ask that on such consequential decisions affecting our community, that we all exercise Vohu Manah, our good judgement, to arrive at an outcome that serves our entire community’s best interests. The board will always strive to work toward maintaining unity, to imbibe our religious values, and to keep our community flame healthy and burning brightly for future generations.
So as we embark on another year of continuous improvement, we thank you for your support and your constructive feedback. We look forward to another year of moving our community forward with the energy, wisdom and sound decision making our ZAC deserves. Best wishes for a safe and happy summer!
Hamāzor Hamā Ashō-bēd!
May we all be united in strength and righteousness!
