Dear CBI Family,

     I can’t remember when Rosh Hashanah has ever fallen the same week as Labor Day.  The congregation office is busy preparing for another High Holiday Season.  Torah covers have been changed, reading assignments have been mailed out, and the larger High Holiday choir has begun to review their music pieces.  And as always, the annual High Holiday Appeal as begun.  As I hope you have read, we are calling on our CBI family to help build up our camper scholarship fund.  Please read my letter and consider a donation to this worthy cause.
     Even though we are all busy preparing for the high holidays, there is always congregational business to handle.  Past President Jim Gold has accepted my request to chair the Ritual Committee, which will go through a bit of a reorganization phase.  Our treasurer Robin Adams has spent a great deal of time reviewing our financials and some changes have been made to monitor funds and consolidate accounts for a better return. We have also engaged a CPA firm to help review and streamline our procedures.
     One of the more surprising discoveries during my first few months in office is the helpfulness of our congregants.  Some of our members truly help make Congregation Beth Israel run more smoothly.  In just the past month, several people have made a difference at CBI. Julia Noble and Chris Adler put together a nice reception following Dr Groner’s funeral.  Natalie Honigbaum and Susan Martin stepped in to help cover the office to allow Debbie some time off after her father in law’s death.  Rikki Schmitchel kept an eye on landscaping issues, gathered bids and had trees trimmed on our grounds.  The Fedder Family often helps Linda clean up after the Onegs and even handled clean up detail one Friday night when Linda was away.   Chris Adler has spent endless hours working on a cemetery project, and I already mentioned the great amount of time that Robin Adams has spent working on money matters for our congregation.  This list is only a sampling of what has gone on this month.  
     I look forward to seeing you all during the High Holidays.  Please join us to welcome in the New Year and reflect on how we can make this a better year for both ourselves and our Congregation.  

L’Shanah Tovah!
