President's Message - April 2014 Print

Passover is one of my favorite holidays.  Most years, our entire family manages to come together and celebrate the Pesach meal.  I love the traditions, the food, the symbolism and the challenge of keeping Passover in Corpus Christi. Year after year, our Sisterhood lovingly puts on a beautiful Seder.  This is definitely not a fundraiser, as they usually lose money.  However, it is a great service to our community and I appreciate all the hard work that goes in to this meal.   I want to thank our congregation once again for contributing to this year’s High Holiday Appeal.  As a result, we are able to assist nine children with partial scholarships to attend camp. With such a wonderful interest in attending Jewish camps, we were only able to provide a portion of the tuition.  A great deal of the burden is still on our congregant families.  Thank you to our families, for choosing to reinforce your children’s connection to their Judaism.  Another way of enriching our congregation is the addition of new members to our CBI family.  We will be celebrating the addition of new families to our Congregation on Friday, April 25.  If you are aware of new member prospects, please contact our CBI office.  Please join us on that evening, as we make them truly feel part of our family.  Have a wonderful April!
