Brit Olam: Your Commitment to Making a Difference

Make a difference in the New Year! Sign a Brit Olam

It’s the start of the Jewish new year, and the beginning of Congregation B’nai Shalom’s 40th anniversary commemoration– what better time to reflect on where we’ve been and resolve to make the future brighter?

We invite all CBS members to join in a new social action initiative by signing a personal or family “brit olam” – a promise to the world. The idea is very simple. Commit to doing one action between now and next April to change or help heal the world. Even better, do this together with others and multiply your impact.

Not sure what you’d like to do? We can help! The CBS Social Action Committee will maintain a menu of mitzvah opportunities and can help match you up with others who share your interests.

Here are some upcoming opportunities that we or our members are offering:

Pie in the Sky 2018 - Join the CBS Team!

We are back again to help Community Servings' and their annual Pie in the Sky Thanksgiving bake sale. Community Servings prepares and delivers 650,000 medically tailored meals annually to critically and chronically ill individuals and their families.

 

We can make a bigger impact as a team. Which is why we are inviting YOU to help sell delicious apple, pecan, pumpkin, and sweet potato pies this year for Thanksgiving. Each $30 pie we sell provides a week's worth of nutritious meals for a critically ill neighbor in need.

So what are you waiting for? Please Join the Congregation B'nai Shalom Team at this link: https://www.pieinthesky.org/seller-sign-up/ and don't forget to join the team of "Congregation B'nai Shalom"

If you would like to support one of the team members and purchase a pie, then please use this link: - https://www.pieinthesky.org/team/congregation-bnai-shalom/

Each pie is just $30, an amount which provides a week's worth of nutritious, home- delivered meals to someone who is too sick to shop or cook for themselves or their family.

We’ll be sharing our efforts on Instagram (so snap those selfies while you’re out doing good!), and will celebrate all that we’ve accomplished with an exhibit and video in May. Request to follow CBSBritOlam on Instagram and we'll approve all members to follow and post.

We hear a lot about how much is wrong in the world – imagine how much we could contribute to what’s right by taking action together. Fill in the form below to sign your brit olam and join us!
