Dear Members of CBI,

By the time you receive this message, we will in the mist of Pesach. We have celebrated in our homes and the community Seder at our congregation. It was wonderful and attended with well over one hundred twenty.

Special thanks to Phyllis Roseman, Dottie Heffler and all others for making this yearly event enjoyable and successful. Their effort is greatly appreciated.

You might be interested in knowing that we continue receiving inquiries from the country concerning our merger. It is wonderful to respond and relate our story of success. It is with great pride that we share our story.

As our fiscal year winds down it is my duty to follow procedural rules of our by-laws. I have appointed our past President Andy Lehrman, to chair the nominating committee and select a proposed list of officers and to board for the coming year.

Please make plans to be present at our annual meeting.  A date in June will be announced shortly.

We need your input and help to continue our Congregation’s growth.

            Shalom,
            Maury Wolfson
 
President's Message - March 2010 PDF Print E-mail
Dear Members of CBI,

It is hard to believe that once again on the evening of March 29, we begin the celebration of Passover, the biblical liberation of the Jewish people for Egyptian slavery. The festive celebration of Pesach is rich with traditions meant to help us remember the past and achieve freedom in our own lives.  The Torah promises that one day, Jews will merit redemption from all of our oppressors and enemies.

Please come participate with us at CBI. Our weekly religious services on Friday and Saturday, study group with the Rabbi, adult beginners Hebrew class, twice weekly religious school, and monthly Shabbat dinners are available for all. In addition we have many committee meetings, monthly board and Sisterhood meetings.

This year our congregants will join in celebrating four Bnai Mitzvahs and several conversions. As you can see we are busy at Congregation Beth Israel.

            Shalom,
            Maury Wolfson

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

 
President's Message - January 2010 PDF Print E-mail
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

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
