Letter from the Editors

It’s all about power – the power of Mother Nature and the type of power you get out of an electrical plug. Like many of you, the Jewish Press office lost power during Hurricane Irma and as of Friday, Sept. 15, the electricity still had not been restored. Combine that with our printer and mailer shutting down a couple of days before the hurricane to protect their sensitive equipment and it was a perfect storm for us.

As a consequence, we decided to combine the Sept. 8 and Sept. 22 High Holiday editions. Right now, we are producing the paper out of our small condominium. That has presented its own challenges, but we are persevering.

One of our main goals has been to document – at least preliminarily – how the official Jewish community fared in the hurricane. There are some heart-warming stories of how various institutions reached out during and in the aftermath of Irma.

Thank you in advance for your understanding. Some of the usual synagogue and organizational news may not make it in the paper due to space restraints and our effort to get the paper to the printer as soon as possible. Some other information may be outdated by the time you receive your copy in the mail. Hopefully, you will receive this combined edition prior to the start of the High Holidays, but unfortunately there are no guarantees.
