Rabbi Eiduson Receives Distinguished Educator's Award


During the annual convention of the Association for Reform Jewish Educators (ARJE, formally known as NATE), Rabbi Joe Eiduson was one of three honorees to receive the Distinguished Educator's Award. This award, co-sponsored by Congregation B'nai Shalom, recognizes outstanding achievement in Jewish education. Rabbi Eiduson has been working in Jewish education for twenty-five years, a milestone for which he was also recognized during the convention. He has dedicated his rabbinate to working in the field of Jewish education, in both congregational and day school settings. Prior to joining the professional team at CBS, Joe was Head of the Rashi School. He currently serves on the board of ARJE and is co-chair of their Finance committee. We are blessed to have an educator who has sought to improve upon our school and youth program year upon year, re-designing our Chai School program, integrating our 7th grade into the Chai School, developing a full-time Youth Director position that has enabled us to expand our youth group offerings from third through twelfth grade, and now working on CBS21 to re-evaluate and improve our K6 grade programs. Please join us in a Mazal Tov to Rabbi Eiduson on this well-deserved honor.
