President's Message - February 2010 PDF Print E-mail
Dear Members of CBI,

Our Congregation continues to move forward with religious services, adult study sessions and special projects. The board, Sisterhood, and all committees work efficiently for the betterment of Congregation Beth Israel.

You are important as a congregant. Shortly you will receive a call from an officer or board member requesting suggestions that we might implement.

During my many years of participation in our Jewish Community, the one thing that gratifies me most is the fact that our board efforts result in positive outcomes and without rancor.

Later this month, we will celebrate the festival of Purim. We read the Megillah and twirl the grogers-noisemakers as we drown out the name of Haman. We also pay homage to the beautiful Queen Esther.

As we close, I am pleased tell you that attendance at services has increased. Come participate. Congregation Beth Israel is the place to be for Jewish stimulation.

            Shalom,
            Maury Wolfson

Dear Members of CBI,


As we begin the calendar year 2010, I want to leave you with thoughts of Shabbat.

Imagine how wonderful it would be to completely relax and forget the rush and stress of our daily affairs, to have time for ourselves with no other duties except to reflect on our accomplishments and the direction of our lives.  That is Shabbat. It is a special gift from G_d. It is a day G_d finished the activity of creating and gave all creation the opportunity to rest and redirect goals, ambitions and focus. The true meaning of Shabbat is rest and retirement from the working world to a day of tranquility. We welcome the Shabbat by lighting the Shabbat candles that glow with spirituality.

I hope you will consider this message and give some thought to increasing your attendance at our Shabbat services. Perhaps you will list this as one of your 2010 resolutions.

      
            Shalom,
            Maury Wolfson
 
President's Message - December 2009 PDF Print E-mail
Dear Members of CBI,

I am writing this the week of Thanksgiving. I have just read an article in a magazine by a young Jewish author who remembers a Thanksgiving dinner at his Yiddish speaking grandparent’s home. It was his grandmother’s custom to put corn kernels on each family member’s plate. They then were instructed to put one kernel on the table for each thing they were thankful for at that time.  

As the hour passed, I considered all the ways we have been blessed this year as a Congregation. We continue to be most fortunate to have a dynamic religious leader, we have a committed board of directors, many new congregants, and Sisterhood’s successful and lucrative Food Fest.

I also personally have much to be thankful for this year and I hope each and everyone of you have much to celebrate.

Rosalyn joins me in wishing you a festive Hanukkah and a Happy New Year.

            Shalom,
            Maury Wolfson

Dear Members of CBI,

Thanksgiving is upon us, and again this year, we will be celebrating with the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. This tradition began seventy-five years ago.  There has been a change in scheduling.  We will convene at 7:30 pm on November 25th. We hope that this change will enable more congregants to attend.
 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who contributed to our very successful High Holiday appeal. The number of members donating, and the grand total exceeded our expectations.
 
The early Shabbat services preceding our monthly family dinners have been well attended.  I hope you will join us in the future. You will be rewarded with prayer, good food, fun and fellowship.  We are very appreciative of Meredith Ryan's efforts in organizing and delivering these monthly meals.
 
The future of our congregation appears very bright at this time. With the addition of sixteen new family members, we are expanding our numbers. I hope that you will warmly welcome these new families
 
Let us all thank who are working feverishly preparing for Food Fest, November 14th & 15th. Their effort is a monumental task, and I know all involved feel their work is a labor of love.

Congregation Beth Israel has many exciting events planned for the near future. I urge everyone to become involved and participate.

As your president, I hope you will feel free to approach me when you have questions. I would also be open to suggestions that might make our congregation even more efficient and effective.
 
May you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
 
             Shalom,
 
            Maury Wolfson
            President

Dear Members of CBI,
 
Having concluded Rosh HaShanah, when we welcomed the Jewish New Year 5770 and Yom Kippur, when we reflected on our past transgressions, we now approach the festive days of Sukkot and Simchat Torah.
 
Our New Year brings promise of exciting activities, beginning with our Annual Food Fest on November 14th & 15th.
 
Many of you have already volunteered for this worthy project, but additional help is needed and will be welcomed. The raffle and silent auction shall be exciting as well.
 
Food Fest is the Sisterhood's primary money maker, and their contribution to our congregation's operating budget is vital. Please contact Laura Noe or Ann Engel and sign up to participate.
 
Again we welcome our newest members to our Family of Families.  With the children of our congregants, our religious school enrollment has risen considerably.
 
Your officers and board continue to monitor the daily operation of our congregation. Please call me with any questions or concerns you may have.
 
This New Year, it is my hope that you will  attend services more frequently and participate in our congregation's many worthwhile activities, that you will find most rewarding.
 
        Shalom,
        Maury Wolfson
        President
