Shalom Chaverim. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

I’d like to take this opportunity to share my gratitude for our community. I am so grateful to be the Spiritual Leader of CBI. Thank you for the opportunity to step into my “dream job” every day.

What a gift to be in Jewish community. Truly. And especially right now.

Staying connected and being involved allows us to both give and receive the gift of Jewish communal life. There are times when we have much to offer, and we give our resources and talents. There are times when we are in need, and we lean into the support of a loving community that is totally there for us. In the course of our lives, we will undoubtedly experience both. What a blessing.

Let’s keep our community strong by being an integral part of the giving and receiving.

Congregation Beth Israel, our sweet Shul so full of life and love, is a place we can call home. It is our place. Together we make memories and meaning. Now more than ever we need our Jewish home–to welcome us, to inspire us, to support us.

All that we give to CBI makes our Jewish family strong. All that we give to CBI enriches our lives. All that we give to CBI radiates positive vibes outward.

At a time when things may feel very much out of our control, being a part of Jewish community is completely within our sphere of influence. So come and find your place and be part of helping others find their place too. Together we make it happen. Giving and receiving.

What a gift to be in Jewish community. Truly!
