with them gives them frequent op
portunity to question me concerning
religious matters and gives me fre
quent chance to speak to them about
their duties I have tried to let no
occasion go by without my presence
This means more than many can ap
preciate It means sacrifice on my
part but rewards me by creating a
bond of confidence between this
young folk and myself which induces
them often to submit even personal
questions to my judgment and al
lows me to be their guide in most
matters Such personal contact be
tween us rebounds only to the good
of all parties concerned
And lastly my work in the com
munity at large has been blessed with
success That I represent our belov
ed congregation worthily has never
been denied There is a better spirit
of the Oneness of Israel in Houston
than has been before my coming
here The various congregations
agree better with each other and re
spect each other much more than was
formerly the case We are no longer
passed as the insignificant part of
the Jewish population and the ortho
dox element of our Jewry is looked
up to now as an element worthy of a
place in all civil councils
Of course mistakes have been
made and there is no man who has
X not his shortcomings But on the
whole I can look back upon my activ
ity here with you as good work con
scientiously done and I am sure you
also regard it as such
r Tor the future my recommenda
tion is at present merely to continue
i in the same lines and our beloved
congregation will in a very short
while be indeed a model for other
orthodox congregations to follow be
< ing a peaceful modern uptodate
synagogue contining in the same
ways our fathers trode
I cannot conclude this report with
out thanking your Board of Offi
cers and Trustees for the unvarying
kindness indulgence and courtesy
toward one They have tried in all
things to uphold my hands and la
bored well with me
And so invoking Gods blessing
on Congregation Adath Yeshurun
its members and their families and
its work and praying for its contin
uous success this report is respect
fully submitted to you
