Our God and God of our ancestors, it was in Your name that members of this community founded this sacred Congregation in 1917 and raised this magnificent building in 1927 to be used for worship and prayer, study and instruction, and joyful Jewish celebration. To You, Eternal God, this holy community has expressed its loyalty and devotion, year after year, until now when it has reached its 97th year of continuous service to the ideals of Judaism.
As our newly elected officers assume responsibility for the many tasks necessary for the continued success and functioning of Free Synagogue of Flushing, may they become strong workers for the good of our sacred community.
“As for this house that you are building and maintaining, if you will walk in My ways and keep my Mitzvot, I will establish My teaching with you, and I will dwell among you, and I will not forsake you.” “For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”
Pam Burrows, President
Linda Stone, Executive Vice President
