Our CBI board met this week and it was decided by a unanimous vote that the congregation itself would no longer be viable. One of the many reasons for this is that we are basically “losing three members of the board” who will be out of the area at least most of the year. While we will not have any scheduled religious services now it is likely that some form of services will resume under the auspices of our Sisterhood.
Sisterhood will continue to function, headed by Judy Donnenberg and Fredda Goodstein. We hope to hold both activities for charitable purposes and activities for cultural/learning fun.
CBI and the JCNCF
We are pleased to announce that we have received
a grant from the JCNCF again.
Through the efforts of Janet and Mary we have applied for and received a grant from the JCNCF to help purchase various Jewish cookbooks which will become a part of a lending library for our congregation. With this money we were able to purchase 13 wonderful books with all types and genres of Jewish cooking and baking. Books are due in soon and will be given out to those who ordered them. Recipients will keep their books for now, going through them, and preparing for the future when we meet again for a Grand Celebration Luncheon! At the luncheon those who have cookbooks will tell us a bit about them and will prepare one recipe from their chosen book. The books will become part of a lending library for the congregation and Sisterhood.
