I want to thank our Family of Families” for entrusting me with the honor leading CBI in continuing to bring , meaningful opportunities for our members to worship, learn, work, and celebrate our treasured Jewish traditions and continue to build positive relations with the Greater Coastal Bend community.

This past year was very successful and we are off to a great start this year. Plans for the High Holiday services are well underway as we have 1) hired Rabbi Ari Vernon from Houston to conduct our traditional services, 2) are arranging  readers for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and  3) planning for the Break the Fast. Food Fest Is off to a fast start under the direction of Phyllis Roseman and Chris Adler with David Jacobs Coordinating the food and Sue Williams coordinating the other shops. Of course, Rikki Schmitchel is working her magic throughout the event.  This past week, the Sunday School staff and Rabbi Emanuel met with ISJL representatives to discuss changes in the Sunday School curriculum. I believe the ideas suggested will enhance each child’s Sunday school experience.  Put August 24th on your calendar as the first family dinner. We will be celebrating the end of summer with a “Family of Families” indoor picnic.

My overall vision for CBI this year is to increase the quality of our programs and services so they are tailored to the needs of our congregants. In order to achieve this, we are activating our various committees to identify  needs and developing long and short-term strategies for addressing them. We will be organizing this effort over the next 30 days and will keep you informed of our progress. 

Looking forward to working with you to make CBI the best we can be in serving the entire Coastal Bend Jewish Community.

Thank you,
Jim Gold, CBI President
