NEW 3/20: COVID-19 EMERGENCY APPEAL

This year, what has come to be known at times as the “Rabbi’s Wish List” will be dedicated to the Rabbi Debra Hachen Caring Fund. This fund provides emergency money to help congregants in need pay rent, their electric bill, with supermarket gift cards to be used for food, and other emergency contingencies. We foresee an increasing need for these emergency funds and ask again for your help. And, if you are in crisis, please always remember that we are here to help.
If you are able to help in this effort, please go to https://www.cbnaishalom.org/form/covid-19-emergency-appeal.html to donate to the Rabbi Debra Hachen Caring Fund in this time of extraordinary emergency and challenge. We must rely on one another for support.

Please be on the lookout for emails from us in the future with the subject, ‘COVID-19 Update’ for this information, as well as posting all updates on a special  page of our temple website at https://www.cbnaishalom.org/covid-19.html.

Rabbi Gurevitz

Message from Rabbi Gurevitz

There are lines from a poem by Alvin Fine that opens: Birth is a beginning and death a destination, and life is a journey…

The poem goes on to reflect on the full spectrum of life experiences that are part of that journey — from innocence to awareness, ignorance to knowing, foolishness to discretion. It goes on: from health to sickness and back, we pray, to health again…

Rabbi Eiduson

Message from Rabbi Eiduson

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are well, safe, and enjoying the summer!  We are preparing for the coming school year which hopefully will be live but may be online.  There is a lot of work to do! We are designing new curriculum, hiring faculty, meeting with teachers virtually, updating registration (Opens August 4) and planning every detail for the coming school year...

Hello. I’ve known for a while that I would take my turn and that this moment would arrive — my first Monthly Connections article as president of Congregation B’nai Shalom.
