MCJC Annual Notice & Proxy

Dear Fellow Congregant:

The annual meeting of the McHenry County Jewish Congregation will be held Sunday, May 19, 2019, at 10:30 am. The meeting will include:

  • State of the Congregation 
  • Board of Directors Election, 2019-20
  • Rabbi’s Comments, School & Committee Reports
  • Open discussion of congregational matters

The annual meeting coincides with year-end school activities, which will begin at 9:15 am. All members are encouraged to attend the annual meeting starting at 10:30 am, as your input is vital to our success. We hope you also plan to attend our annual school closing picnic, which will start at about 11:15 am. 

Each family membership is entitled to two votes (member must be 18 or older). Single members are entitled to one vote. 

A quorum (25% of eligible voters) is required to conduct congregational business so it is important you either attend or provide a proxy. If you cannot attend, you are allowed to designate a vote by proxy. You may print out and sign the proxy below and send it along with a member who is attending the May 19 meeting, or you may cut, paste and complete the proxy and email it to Dale Morton at or Karen Koenig at

Your vote is necessary to advance the business of this congregation this coming year by voting for or against the slate presented to the congregation by the Nominating Committee.

MCJC’s Nominating Committee is pleased to announce the following slate of officers for consideration for the 2019-20 fiscal year. 

Karen Koenig – co-President
Andy Purvin – co-President (acting Secretary)
Dara Turnball – co-President
Jennifer Finger – Treasurer

At-Large Board Members
Robb Tadelman
Mark Goldberg
Iza Celewicz
Brian Horn
Jonah Markowitz

We hope you will be able to join us on May 19.  If you have any questions you can contact our Nominating Committee Chair, Dale Morton, or Co-President, Karen Koenig.

Karen Koenig, MCJC Co-President

Please either cut and paste and complete the proxy and email it to me, Karen Koenig, at, or to Dale Morton at — or employ the tried and true technique of printing out the proxy, signing it and giving it to a member who is attending the meeting.


I, _____________________________________________, will not be able to attend the Congregational Meeting of MCJC on May 19, 2019. I designate the congregant member below to vote on all matters on my behalf.
