President's Message - December 2009 Print
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
