President's Message - November 2013 Print
Dear CBI Family,
 
November is the month of our CBI Sisterhood Food Fest. I am using my space this month to brag on my fellow sisters.  I may be a little biased, but this group does amazing things with a small core group of volunteers.  As a past Sisterhood president and a past Food Fest Chair, I know exactly what they are all going through at this moment. Heavy duty cooking of mass quantities of kugel, matzo ball soup, cabbage rolls and rugelach have already taken place. Raffle prizes have been gathered and tickets mailed out to congregants, enabling all members to participate in the event.  Many meetings and numerous hours of planning have happened up to this point.   We have people chairing silent auction that are busy gathering prizes, others working on equipment, set up, signage and public relations.  Others are gathering and planning the popular vintage shop.   Co- chairs are meeting, baking, and organizing the sweet shop.  Honestly, everyone in our congregation is needed to pull off this Jewish Food Fest.  And everyone is needed to help in more than one area.  Encourage friends to attend the event, provide silent auction items, bake sweets for the ever popular sweet shop, and look through your closets for special accessories that would be perfect for the vintage shop.  However, one of the most important things you can do is attend the event on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.  Be ambassadors for our congregation.  This is a wonderful opportunity to shine, to show others that we are a welcoming group, eager to share our home and heritage with our neighbors.  There is still cooking and preparations to do.  Call and volunteer your services, and start encouraging your neighbors to join in the fun on November 16 and 17. Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
