membership and pump up par-
ticipation in an effort to save the
temple from a downward spiral.
In the past eight years, mem-
bership levels have fallen from
1,600 to about 1,200 families, in
part because of turmoil caused
by the departure of two senior
"Our purpose is to bring peo-
ple together to work together to
make the temple one family
again," Mr. Kuttnauer said.
The two slate leaders met pri-
or to the election and agreed, no
matter the outcome, to work to-
gether on rebuilding the temple.
They also were concerned that
election results would produce a
schism that could further divide
the congregant body.
After the election results were
tallied, about 1260 for the tem-
ple slate and 240 for the opposi-
tion, Mr. Kamins appealed to
congregants to help with recon-
structing and changing temple
"The huge voter turnout and
the outcome are a reflection that
an overwhelming number of
Beth El members want continu-
ity of leadership to move for-
ward," Mr. Kamins said.
"Now we can focus all of our
energy and attention to our pro-
grams and serving our mem-

pleased that Curtis Kuttnauer
has assured us that his group

To start the process of re-
building, the two helped form a
12-member congregant group
that will confront such issues as
making the temple more ap-
pealing to different age groups.
In a sign of mutual respect, the
two signed the letter that was
sent to congregants informing
them of the new efforts.
'We have no authority. We are
just concerned congregants," Mr.
Kuttnauer said, calling the
group's meetings "brainstorming
'We are trying to think of cre-
ative ways to approach different
problems," he said.

But the temple will also face
the challenge of finding a new
rabbi. Rabbi Daniel Polish served
his last day June 17 before going
on a forced sabbatical. Rabbi Ju-
lian Cook is holding the inter-
im position for one year but the
senior rabbi seat will be vacant
again next June.
"I see this as a great opportu-
nity for the temple. We have a
very large and inclusive search
committee," Mr. Kamins said.
