With Thanks to Our Wonderful Community:
 
May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young
-- Bob Dylan
 
Richard Mark and Maura Harway
We moved to the west side in 1986, the year before
our older daughter's bat mitzvah. One week after
the bat mitzvah, we set out on what we thought
would be a series of shul-shopping visits.
 
Our first stop was Minyan M'at and we went no further:
we felt at home immediately. Over the years,
we have come to feel that the larger
Ansche Chesed community provides us
all with support and comfort.
We are deeply grateful for the community we share.
