President's Message - October 2011 PDF Print E-mail
Dear Members of CBI,

In September, Congregation Beth Israel participated in a community event remembering and honoring the victims of 9-11. The fact that Christians, Muslims and Jews intentionally worked together to perform specific acts of kindness, generosity, and prayer was unique to Corpus Christi and an important part of our Jewish tradition that we not only remember but take action.  On Wednesday night September 5, 2011 the social hall was abuzz with people of all faiths packing bags of essentials for the Good Samaritan Mission. In the kitchen our teens were busy baking brownies and cookies for the homeless living at the Shelter and most importantly just enjoying the time together. I want to publicly thank Rabbi Roseman for his outstanding leadership in working with the other clergy in organizing and coordinating the entire community wide project, Julia Noble for taking charge of the kitchen where all the consumable goodies were produced, Robert Adler for sending out a wonderful personal letter that resulted in over $4,000 being raised for the homeless of Corpus Christi, and to all of our congregants who participated in one of the many projects, made a financial donation or both. We can proudly say Congregation Beth Israel family made a significant contribution to Tikkun Olam –repairing the world.

We want to start the New Year off by continuing our commitment to Tikkun Olam through our annual High Holiday Appeal. Your Board of Directors has decided that 100% of the money raised this year will be divided among three important and needy causes. First, money will be set aside to assist local congregants who have temporary financial needs. The second recipient will be the Leo Baeck School in Haifa which is an inclusive, pluralistic organization whose community center, schools and social outreach serves all Israelis – black and white, Arab and Jew, religious and secular, new immigrant and native born. The third recipient of the funds will be Yad LaKashish—Lifeline for the Old that provides needy elderly Israelis of Jerusalem with a sense of purpose and self-worth through creative work opportunities and essential support services. Those of us who have been to Israel on recent congregation trips have seen the impressive and needed services both the Leo Baeck School and Yad LaKashish provide to both the young and the old respectively in Israel today.  We hope you will consider giving to the appeal this year so that those less fortunate in these stressful times can be better off.

Barbara and I wish each of you a healthy, happy and successful new year.

                   Shalom,
                   Jim Gold
