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

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
 
President's Message - November 2009 PDF Print E-mail
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
